Mr FULTON (LEICHHARDT, QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Treasurer. In view of the fact that work has begun on a developmental roads programme in Queensland in accordance with a plan announced by the Federal Government earlier this year, I ask the Minister: What is the financial arrangement-

Mr Harold Holt - To what plan is the honorable member referring?

Mr FULTON - To the developmental roads programme which was announced earlier this year. I ask the Treasurer: What is the financial arrangement between the Federal Government and the State Government for the completion of the programme? Will Queensland receive treatment as favorable as that extended to Western Australia? If Queensland is to be given financial assistance on the basis of £1 for every £1 of State expenditure, will that State receive additional loan money over and above its normal requirements in order to pay for this work, or must it use funds from its normal loan allocation?
