Mr OPPERMAN (CORIO, VICTORIA) (Minister for Shipping and Transport) - I appreciate the honorable member's interest in the Eyre Highway, having regard to the nature of the sports events that will take place in Perth in 1962. The allocation of finance under the Commonwealth aid roads scheme is a matter of Cabinet policy, and any variations of the allocations must accordingly be decided by Cabinet. But I assure the honorable member that I shall take note of his request. I should like to have further information on it. I have been made aware of this matter only by his question and what I have read in a newspaper. When I have obtained further information, I shall give the honorable member a detailed answer.
