Senator LAUCKE (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I desire to ask a question of the Minister representing the Minister for National Development. In view of South Australia's great dependence on the River Murray for its water supply, can the Minister inform me whether the Australian Water Resources Council and/or the River Murray Commission are pursuing investigations into the provision in South Australia of a major storage of the Chowilla type to ensure to that State the full benefits derivable from the Dartmouth project? If such investigations are not being made currently, will the Minister ask the Minister for National Development to have an inquiry instituted immediately as a matter of urgency for South Australia?

Senator COTTON - As I have said on many occasions, 1 understand and acknowledge the great importance of the River Murray to South Australia. Accordingly. I shall take that question cm ite seriously to the responsible Minister.
