Mr TURNBULL (MALLEE, VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister for National Development. Is the honourable gentleman aware of my advocacy during the adjournment debate last night of a grant for pipelining in the Millewa district of north western Victoria from the $50m to be provided over 5 years for water conservation as announced in the last Budget? Does the Minister know that in the Millewa large quantities of water in open earthen channels are lost through seepage and evaporation, and that the suggested pipelining would make available to the district at least an additional 7,000 acre feet of water, making possible additional production valued at present rates at over Sim per annum?
