1.   Has the Minister seen a report (a) that a Port Moresby building contractor plans to sue the Commonwealth Department of Works for breach of contract because his £740,000 contract to build the Goroka teachers' college has suddently been cancelled because of a World Bank recommendation, and (b) that already the Department of Works has ordered plans to be shelved for four other major projects?

2.   Have such projects been shelved? If so, why?

3.   Is the Government in possession of the World Bank report? If so, how long has the report been in its possession, and when does it intend to release the contents?
