Mr SINCLAIR (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister Assisting the Minister for Trade and Industry) - I know that the honourable member for Wakefield has a very close interest in this new line. I understand that the report from the consultants will be availsable to the South Australian and Commonwealth Governments later this week. The contents of that report are not known to me but it is true that several branch lines as well as the principal connection between Port Pirie and Adelaide are covered by the reference to the consultants. As to any particular routes which may be covered, this will have to wait for determination by the consultants and by the Governments after consideration of the report. J can assure the honourable member that it is the intention of this Government, in line with the undertaking given by the Prime Minister, to consider the report of the consultants at the earliest possible opportunity and to proceed with the construction of the line as soon as is reasonably possible.
