Senator DAVIDSON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Is the Minister representing the Minister for National Development aware that the Victorian Minister for Water Supply, Mr Roberts Dunstan, is reported to have stated that by the time the New South Wales, Victorian and Commonwealth Governments receive legal advice on the ramifications of the South Australian Government's amended Dartmouth legislation, the Dartmouth dam may be dead and finished? Is he aware that this reported view was expressed after discussions with both New South Wales and Commonwealth Ministers? If, as the Victorian Minister claims, the Dartmouth proposition may not be worth it owing to rising costs, will he ascertain whether these reports are correct and will he take steps to seek an early solution to the present situation so that South Australia will not be denied the water which it so urgently needs?
