Senator SANDFORD (VICTORIA) - I address my question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. According to a recent Press report, Mr. Campbell intends making a further attempt on either the water or the land speed record in Australia. Has the Government been approached on this matter? Does it intend to make any contribution, by way of either cash or services, to this attempt? If it does, how much cash and what services are to be made available? If the Government intends to make available cash and/ or services for this attempt by an individual on speed records, what justification can it give for expending taxpayers* money in this way? I ask this question because in a previous record attempt in Australia the Commonwealth did make available services - I know that for sure - and perhaps cash.
