Tuesday, 6 September 1960

Mr OPPERMAN - As the honorable member for Mallee asked a question on this subject last Thursday, and knowing the tenacity with which he pursues a purpose, 1 checked up on the matter. I am happy to inform the honorable member that the total amount provided for 1960-61 is £46,000,000. As to whether the amount provided this year for Victoria, which is £9,300,000, is greater than that made available for 1949-50, I assure him that it is, because in that year the figure for all the States of Australia was £8,600,000. I might add that under the new Commonwealth Aid Roads Agreement with the States - the new five-year agreement - the figure will be £100,000,000 more than frothe preceding five years.
