Mr HAROLD HOLT - As I indicated earlier, all the State Premiers were consulted with regard to this matter. The Premier of Western Australia indicated that that State was not seeking any increased allocation at this stage. As to the second part of the honorable member's question, I understand that Western Australia has not yet used its full borrowing capacity. It was agreed further, in the covering letter that went out in relation to this arrangement, that further consideration could be given later in the year to the circumstances of both Western Australia and Tasmania, neither of which was seeking any increase at this point of time, if the circumstances later in the year appeared to warrant some further provision.
