Mr WATSON - The answer to the honorable member's question is as follows: -

I shall ask my colleague, the Minister of Home Affairs, to take steps in the direction indicated, although I understand the matter has already had some consideration at his hands. I am, at the instance of my colleague, communicating with the States interested, to ascertain if they are willing, under section 51 subsection XXXVII of the Constitution, to allow the Federal Government to deal with the Murray waters in respect of irrigation as well as navigation.
