Mr IAN ALLAN (GWYDIR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for National Development whether his attention has been invited to the claim by Alcoa of Australia Pty Ltd that it has developed a new process for the desalination of water which is considerably cheaper than existing processes. As one of the requirements of this new process is that the water must be pre-heated, will the Minister consider and investigate the application of this new system for desalinating the heavily mineralised hot water from artesian bores, and the possibility of its Tendering this water fit for domestic and stock purposes?
