Mr HILL - This matter has already been considered, and the honorable member will recollect that some little time ago he introduced a deputation to me with respect to it. I then pointed out that the construction of a road between Canberra and Albury, as suggested, would cost approximately £750,000. It would be necessary to construct 20 miles of roadway through the mountains, for which work the estimate of the Main Roads Board of New South Wales is £400,000. The construction of a road from Canberra to Tumut would shorten the journey from here to Albury by only 16 miles.
