Mr BURKE (PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Oan the Minister ,for the. Interior furnish any information in relation to negotiations with the Government of South Australia for the running of a third passenger train weekly between Perth and Adelaide and thence to Melbourne? Prior to the war, when this additional service was provided, was a concessional fare allowed to railway employees, and to members of football and other sporting' teams which travelled as a body? Was this concession suspended during the currency of the war? If so, is it intended to grant it afresh when the third train is restored? If the restoration is not to be made automatically, will the Minister consider its immediate application, and thus confer a distinct benefit on the Perth and "West Perth football teams which propose to travel to the eastern States this year, and help considerably many footballers who have returned to the game for the first time this year after lengthy and noble service in the defence of their country ?
