Mr FAIRBAIRN (FARRER, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for National Development) - Some months ago a request was received from the Queensland Government for a reappraisal of the Burdekin River scheme. The Commonwealth has not yet been able to accede to the request. The Commonwealth is assisting the Queensland Government to assess two projects in the tributaries which flow into the Burdekin River, namely the Bowen River and the Broken River. Having received a request from the Queensland Government for funds to assist in the building of a dam on the Broken River, the Commonwealth has not been able to do more than that up to the present.
