Mr CALDER (Northern Territory) - Once again I commend the Government on the work that it is carrying out in the Northern Territory. On this occasion the Government is considering the construction of an electricity supply power station at Alice Springs, which is a rapidly developing area and which is my home town. I note that the proposed new station will contain 2 new diesel generators and tha! the building will be air cooled while the control room will be fully air-conditioned. I think that this is wise planning because temperatures in Alice Springs have already risen above the century mark although we are still in October. I am certain that when the Department of Works is granted approval to commence this work at Alice Springs it will do a good -job and hasten the electricity supply which is so needed in this developing town.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
