Mr CLEAVER (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Will the Treasurer admit that a convincing case has been submitted to the Government for a continuation of the comprehensive water supply scheme in Western Australia? Does this involve anything more than a £1 for £1 subsidy for essential developmental works in Western Australia which, unfortunately, cannot participate directly in the benefits from the mighty Snowy Mountains scheme?

Will he give an assurance that the Government will look sympathetically at this request from Western Australia with a view to enable the current plan of work to proceed without interruption, thus providing an assured water supply to more than 11,000,000 acres of farm lands?
