Senator RAE - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Tourism and Recreation whether it is a fact that State governments are required to submit their recreation projects to the Federal Minister for Tourism and Recreation for his approval where they seek Commonwealth Government contributions. Is it a fact that no decision has yet been made on the Victorian projects for 1974-75, notwithstanding that 4Vi months of the year have now passed? Is it not a fact that the delay might cause some of the projects to be abandoned? Will the Minister seek to have his colleague expedite a decision before inflation puts the projects beyond the means of the State?

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - I ask the honourable senator to place the question on notice.
