Mr DEVINE (EAST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. I refer to the Government's blatant vote-catching announcement of financial grants for the Ord and Emerald schemes. Can the Prime Minister explain why his Government consistently discriminates against New South Wales, which State also needs financial assistance to carry out programmes of water conservation, road construction, housing and education and the eastern suburbs railway? Is he aware that there are electors in New South Wales who exercise the franchise?
