Senator NEEDHAM - I desire to ask the Minister representing the Minister of Home Affairs if he can inform the Senate as to the stage reached in connexion with the negotiations which, I understand, are now going on between the Commonwealth Government and the South Australian Government in reference to the acquirement by the Commonwealth of land necessary for the construction and maintenance of the trans- Australian railway. Will the Minister," when giving the information, also inform the Senate as to when a start will be made with the construction of the line after the negotiations referred to are completed?
