Mr J R Fraser - T ask the Minister for the Interior: Is h true that the National Capital Development Commission has informed some contractors engaged on Government work in Canberra that the commission will not be able to pay more than a proportion of progress payments which will fall due between now and the end of the financial year? Does this mean that the commission is over-committed to expenditure from the Budget allocation? Does it mean, further, that if the Canberra programme is to continue it must be, for the time being at least, financed by the contractors and suppliers of materials?
