Mr SINCLAIR (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister Assisting the Minister for Trade and Industry) - I am advised that work on the line to which the honourable gentleman has referred is, in part, proceeding well and truly according to schedule. I refer to the part between Port Pirie and Cockburn on the border between South Australia and New South Wales. It is anticipated that this part of the line will be available for operation before the end of the year. Construction of the part between Cockburn and Broken Hill, which I am advised is about 30 miles long, is principally the responsibility of the South Australian Government. While some design work has been undertaken on this part of the line, as yet construction has not commenced. In the result, it seems unlikely that the line will be completed by the scheduled date of April 1969.
