Mr SEXTON (ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I preface my question, which is directed to the Minister for National Development, by saying that last Wednesday the Minister, in reply to a question asked by the honorable member for Macquarie, said that the Snowy Mountains Authority had a large programme of work and the 1,500 employees would be engaged on the Snowy Mountains scheme for a long time to come. I ask the Minister: Is it not a fact that with the completion of the Murray power stations and the Jindabyne, Jounama, Blowering and Talbingo dams, no further major water conservation projects are planned in the Snowy Mountains scheme? As the longest scheduled time for the completion of these projects is six years and as some Snowy Mountains projects have been completed ahead of scheduled time, will the Government regard the future of the Snowy Mountains Authority as a matter of urgency?
