Mr DUTHIE (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - Can the Minister for Urban and Regional Development clarify his Press statement, made late last month, that $500,000 would be made available for preliminary work in developing the Tamar Valley in northern Tasmania as one of the first growth centres to be supported in Tasmania with Commonwealth financial assistance?

Mr UREN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Urban and Regional Development) -I made reference to the Tamar region during my ministerial speech on new cities. In that speech I said that $500,000 would be made available for Tasmania and that there would be further study in the Tamar Valley and other study areas in Tasmania. There will also be money made available to the Tamar Valley in our sewerage program. Also in regard to that valley there will be an examination by the Australian Government and the Tasmanian Government as to whether land will be acquired by the Lands Commission.
