Senator PEARCE - The necessary Act passed by the South Australian Parliament to enable a commencement to be made with the railway was thought by the Government to be, in some of its provisions, inadequate for the safeguarding of the interests of the Commonwealth. Certain communications have passed in regard to proposed amendments or alterations, and these negotiations, we hope, will be shortly brought to a successful issue. The intention of the Government in respect to the construction of the railway is disclosed in the GovernorGeneral's Speech, in which it is stated that, after the negotiations referred to are completed, the construction of the line will be immediately proceeded with.
