(a)   Which States have reported.

(b)   What is the substance of each report so far received, and

Senator COTTON - The Minister for Shipping and Transport has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

The Australian Transport Advisory Council at its meeting in July 1971 instructed its advisers to undertake urgently a report on the investment needs of urban public transport in this decade.

The report was to be compiled with the assistance of the Bureau of Transport Economics.

Council at its meeting in February 1972 noted the progress made on this study and the information given by the States. Ministers sought further detailed information and noted that the report, which was still in the course of preparation, would be submitted for further discussions to be held in July 1972.
