Mr HAROLD HOLT - I have seen public references to this matter, to the effect either that the Premier of Victoria was sending a request of this kind to the Commonwealth Government or that some formal letter on the subject had already reached the Prime Minister. I am not clear on the details, but undoubtedly the Premier of Victoria intends to make some representation's of the kind suggested by the honorable member. For our part, we are very conscious of the importance of providing, in the years ahead, for a wider spread of industrial activity outside the major capital cities of the Commonwealth. We shall look with interest, and not without sympathy, at requests of this kind which may reach us, from whatever State they come.
