Mr J R FRASER - I ask the Minister for the Interior: Has he had any discussions or correspondence with the New South Wales Minister for Works about the possibility of joint Commonwealth-State action to improve the road between Canberra and Tumut, in New South Wales? Does the Minister recognize that the improvement of this road would not only provide a shorter route by road between Canberra and Melbourne, but also would open up a richly productive area that would be of extreme value to the Australian Capital Territory? As the shire of Yarrowlumla has under construction a bridge over the Goodradigbee River - that is, of course, a vital part of the programme - will the Minister give fresh consideration to the improvement of the Australian Capital Territory portion of the road and, possibly, to the joint action that I have referred to for the improvement of the road over its whole length?
