Senator PALTRIDGE - As the honorable senator observes, the report made by the Colonial Sugar Refining Co. was submitted to the Western Australian Government. No doubt he will recall that the Western Australian Government requested the company to make this survey of the possibility of sugar production on the Ord River. I gather from the Press that the company has now presented its report to the Western Australian Government. As recently as yesterday I asked my colleague, the Minister for National Development, whether he had a copy of the report. I understand that he has not yet received one from the Western Australian Government.

The honorable senator will appreciate that I cannot undertake to give him any assurance as to the distribution of the report. It is, in fact, not the property of this Government. A decision on whether it should be distributed will be taken by the Western Australian Government, whose property it is.
