Mr KILLEN (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Of the 20 miles of road mentioned by the honorable member for Hume '(Mr. Parker Moloney), only five or six miles present any difficult constructional problems. Is the Minister aware that a resident in the district through which this section of the road would pass is prepared to construct a road quite suitable for motor traffic, though not of concrete, for £6,000 per mile?

Mr HILL - I have heard something to that effect, but I can hardly believe that the report is accurate. If the honorable member will obtain a definite quotation from the person to whom he has referred, and also an indication of the nature of the road he would construct for £6,000 a mile, I shall have pleasure in submitting the proposal to the Main Roads Board of New South "Wales.
