Dr PATTERSON (DAWSON, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Prime Minister a question. Earlier this year the Government promised an estimated $50m for a new comprehensive beef roads scheme principally for Queensland and Western Australia, and the sum of $4.5m was allocated in the Budget for this financial year, which is now almost half over. But as no roads have been mentioned, the allocation is meaningless, as is the promise. Does this $50m beef roads scheme really exist? Is it the Government's intention to honour its promises to the people of Queensland and Western Australia? If so, when will the Government announce the roads involved and the amounts to be given to Queensland and Western Australia to enable them to proceed with the roads as soon as possible?
