Senator MULVIHILL (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Urban and Regional Development. In view of the protocol deadlock between the Prime Minister and the New South Wales Premier in regard to the release of land on the Sydney Harbour foreshore can the Minister remind the Premier of his obligation to write to the Prime Minister and so avoid falling into what is known as Jagoism? Would it be possible to do a package deal in regard to Bantry Bay as distinct from the rest of that land?

Senator CAVANAGH -Yes, I am prepared to put this matter before the Minister. Whether he is prepared to write to the Premier of New South Wales asking him to send a letter to the Prime Minister I do not know. There is some procedure by which almost all letters to State Premiers are written by the Prime Minister himself. But if there is any question that there is a responsibility on the Premier of New South Wales to write a letter and he should be reminded of it, I will take it up with the Minister to see if we can get some reply.
