Mr FAIRHALL (PATERSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Interior) - I am afraid that I cannot undertake to pursue an inquiry into every complaint raised by the honorable member in this chamber, but I can tell him that for a long period, mainly at the instigation of my friend the honorable member for Phillip, I have kept a personal eye on the work going on in this particular area. I am bound to say that sand is won from the area under a contract which provides for rehabilitation and levelling of the area. To the best of my knowledge and from a detailed report given by my officers as late as yesterday, I am satisfied that the work is proceeding properly. The licensee is operating under a bond. The whole matter was dealt with in detailed answers to a question on notice by the honorable member which he has either already received or will receive within the next 24 hours.
