Mr FREETH (FORREST, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Shipping and Transport) - My colleague in another place has informed me that the Government has written to the Rockdale Municipal Council denying liability for the erosion referred to. At the same time the Government has offered the Council $5,000 for certain protective work-

Mr Reynolds - Fair go. 1

Mr FREETH - If the honorable member will exhibit a little patience I will explain what the Government proposes to do. It has offered the Rockdale Municipal Council 15,000 to carry out certain protective work at a certain place on the foreshores. The Government also has written to the Maritime Services Board of New South Wales denying liability and offering to carry out protective work at another point on the foreshores. Further, the Government has suggested that representatives of the Rockdale Municipal Council, the. Maritime Services Board and the Department of Works consult together with a view to carrying out further protective work.
