Mr CURTIN (Fremantle) .- I should like the Assistant Minister (Mr. Harrison) to inform me later, whether any steps have been taken by the authorities to proceed with the construction of the road from Salamaua to Wau, or whether the work will be held up pending the result of an inquiry as to the most economical route.

I should also like to know whether any steps have been taken by the Assistant Minister or his department to carry out the suggestion of the honorable member for Kalgoorlie (Mr. Green) in regard to the calling of tenders for the leasing of a considerable area of forest country in New Guinea. The honorable member for Kalgoorlie suggested that the area should be subdivided so as to prevent the establishment of a monopoly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
