Dr SOLOMON (DENISON, TASMANIA) - Has the Prime Minister seen the alternative structure for the government of Australia recently proposed by the Leader of the Opposition? Does he share my concern that the 3 separate levels of assembly proposed - firstly for national and international affairs, secondly for the major cities, and thirdly for rural areas - appear to deny, among other things, the close inter-relationship which exists between rural and urban economies and between internal and external trade?

Mr McMAHON - I agree with the statement that has just been made in the question asked by my friend. I have not had enough time since I have returned to be able to study the statement made by the honourable gentleman but I can assure the House that the problem of urban development is of great interest to the Government. Only last night it was discussed in a full committee comprising not only my parliamentary colleagues but also members of the organisation. The matter is receiving our closest attention.
