Mr IAN ALLAN (GWYDIR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. In view of the increasing annual demand for fresh water for all purposes in Australia, and in view of the interest of honorable members, and of the public generally, in the practical decentralization of industry, will the Prime Minister arrange, in co-operation with the States, to have a series of maps prepared showing Australia's resources of surface water, the potential for economic - and I stress the word "economic " - storage, and the probable future requirements of Australia of fresh water for industrial, agricultural and other uses?
