Senator COOKE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Has the Government come to a decision concerning the Western Australian Government's request for amounts to enable the completion of the Ord River irrigation project? The State Government sought £19,300,000 to complete the irrigation scheme and £10,700,000 to finance associated developments such as hydro electric power and housing. Requests for both these amounts were made about February or March of this year. If the Government has come to a decision, what decision did it reach? If it has not reached a decision, what is the present position and when can a decision be expected?
