Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Is the Minister representing the Minister tor Shipping and Transport aware that the 300-mile unsealed section of Highway No. 1 between Ceduna and South Australia and the Western Australian border has been impassable for the last 2 days due to rain and is now only passable with extreme caution? As this is a most important national highway with a high volume of vehicular movement, most of which comes from States other than South Australia, will the Minister give consideration to the Commonwealth Government assisting in the sealing of this 300-mile section, the only unsealed part of Highway No. 1 which extends from Cairns to some 700 miles north of Perth?
