Senator SCOTT (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I preface a question, which I direct to the Minister for Shipping and Transport, by stating that pastoralists east of Kalgoorlie are experiencing extreme drought conditions. So much is this so that many of their stock are not getting sufficient water. As a result, I understand, they have made certain approaches to the Minister for Shipping and Transport. Will the Minister say whether any approaches have really been made and whether the Commonwealth Government is taking steps to use the Commonwealth Railways for transporting water to those areas that are suffering so severely under drought conditions?
