Senator WRIGHT (TASMANIA) (Minister for Works) - The honourable senator brought this matter under my notice last week. Therefore I made inquiries and ascertained that in respect of this project tenders have not been called. Actually the project is in the list of works which have been curtailed; it was in the category not covered in expenditure for this year and for which tenders have not been called. However, I have discussed the matter with my colleague the Postmaster-General, Sir Alan Hulme, who is the sponsor of the project, it being within his Department. I understand that he is actively engaged in discussion with the Treasurer. When a decision is made as to whether this project can receive special approval it will be made known to the honourable senator by either myself or the Postmaster-General's representative in the Senate.
