of particular concern that lives had been lost in the current

floods in N.S.W. -

Mr Fraser extended his sincere sympathy to the relatives of

those who have been lost and to all those people of New South

The Prime Minister has assured the Premier that the Commonwealth

as agreed under the natural disaster assistance arrangements,

stands ready to provide financial support to the State for

the relief measures Mr Wran has announced.

wonderful work of the State Emergency Services and the Armed

Forces in their efforts to prevent further loss of life".
