Senator KANE - Does the Minister representing the Minister for Minerals and Energy agree that it is vital that Sydney, Wollongong and Newcastle industries should have an alternative industrial fuel to the Middle East crude, and that the central Australian natural gas would provide this alternative? If so, does he not now agree that the Government should abandon its insistence on building the Gidgealpa to Sydney gas pipeline itself and let the Australian Gas Light Company get on with this urgent job?

Senator WRIEDT -Again I ask the honourable senator to place the question on the notice paper and I shall obtain a reply from the Minister for Minerals and Energy.
