Senator LAUCKE (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I address my question to the Leader of the Government as the representative of the Prime Minister in the Senate. As purposeful decentralisation of industry and population in Australia has thus far lacked verve and go because of insufficient hard core business encouragement by way of worthwhile tax incentives, will the Government give serious consideration to the suggestions made yesterday by Mr C. T. Pullen, the acting president of the Associated Chambers of Manufactures of Australia, that tax incentives of a high order be given by the Government to induce greater private investment in the proposed regional growth centres envisaged in the decentralisation planning?

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - As the Minister representing the Prime Minister in this place I cannot give the honourable senator any assurance. However. I am quite sure that Mr Pullen's remarks will be studied by the Government.I shall most certainly draw to the Prime Minister's attention the question asked by the honourable senator.
