Mr FREETH (FORREST, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Shipping and Transport) - I am not aware of the full details of the case referred to by the honorable gentleman and therefore I cannot say whether it is precisely on all fours with the present situation, I can assure him, however, that the Government does not intend to do anything illegal and that the Minister for Works will undoubtedly look very carefully at that case. But that is a different question from the economics of the case. The economics of taking- the supply of electricity from elsewhere were very carefully explained to this House and to the Public Works Committee at the time the decision was made by the Government.
