Senator McLAREN asked the Minister representing the Minister for National Development, upon notice:

Has the Government taken any action, in response to urgent requests from the National Development Conference held at Canberra in August last year, with regard, to financial participation in decentralisation and balanced development of population and employment in Australia.


Senator COTTON - The Minister for National Development has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

The Government has not as yet taken any action with regard to financial participation in decentralisation and balanced development of population and employment in Australia, as a result of the National Development Conference. The Government is awaiting the report of the CommonwealthState officials Committee on decentralisation. When this report has been received, the Government will be in a better position to define what action is appropriate in these fields.
