Senator MULVIHILL (NEW SOUTH WALES) -I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Defence whether he can elaborate on his earlier response to a question concerning discussions between the Australian Government and the New South Wales Government on the vacation of the Moore Park Engineers Depot, which would allow for a merger of the Sydney Sports Ground and the Sydney Cricket Ground No. 2 for the construction of a modern sports stadium commensurate with the requirements of Sydney's sporting public?

Senator BISHOP -As Senator Mulvihillhas mentioned, tentative proposals from the New South Wales Government have been examined from time to time. Recently Mr Morrison had discussions with the New South Wales Minister for Lands. Whilst the New South Wales Government has put up no positive proposals -

Senator Mulvihill - New South Wales did not put up any positive proposals?

Senator BISHOP - My advice is that it put up tentative proposals, but that they were not positive enough to warrant a direct examination being made of them. But the department is reexamining the matter. At any rate the matter will go before the inter-departmental committee. So the matter will be subjected to a number of examinations. It will be considered by the interdepartmental committee. More precisely, the propositions put up by the New South Wales Government are being examined.
