Senator McLAREN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister representing the Minister for National Development. Earlier this week, I asked the Minister a question regarding a reported water explosion in the Geehi aqueduct of the Snowy Mountains hydro-electric scheme. I now ask: Has the Minister checked with the authorities and has he any information on the matter?

Senator COTTON - I did check with the responsible Minister, not with the authorities. It is the job of the Minister to check with the authorities. I have not received an answer to the present time. I think that it is unlikely that I will get an answer prior to the lifting of the Senate. On the other hand, I am informed by a letter this morning that I am Acting Minister for National Development. So, perhaps we might be able to expedite the matter.
