Senator COTTON (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Civil Aviation) - I understand that the Minister for Shipping and Transport has not submitted any firm plan to the South Australian Government, but in order to try to resolve differences between the 2 governments he has had a meeting with Mr Virgo, the South Australian Minister for Roads and Transport, and at that meeting it was agreed that certain proposals relating to the linking .of Adelaide to the standard gauge line would be submitted to the respective governments for consideration. My understanding is that the Minister for Shipping and Transport will bring this matter before the Government before very long but at this stage he is unable to provide details of the proposals. Therefore it is not possible at the present time to supply any possible date for agreement.
