Mr CLEAVER (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I address a question to the Minister for Shipping and Transport with reference to the Eyre Highway. Has the honorable gentleman been informed that the Government of Western Australia has recently given an assurance that the part of the Eyre Highway for which it is responsible will be put into the best possible condition for the 1962 Empire Games, to be held in Perth? The Commonwealth vote for the maintenance of the Eyre Highway is distributed between South Australia and Western Australia. Will the Minister do his best to have this vote increased for the ensuing financial year? Will he also encourage the Government of South Australia to adopt a programme of work on the highway similar to that of the Government of Western Australia? I also suggest that the Minister, as a renowned sportsman, encourage the games committee and promote overland travel to the games by a personal recommendation to " Glide on Eyre and avoid repair".
