It appears to be conjectured (according to some Sydney newspapers) that the Tumut railway will not be included in the policy to be divulged on Wednesday. If such turns out to be correct the indignation of the residents of the district will know no bounds.
All are confident that the line will be included. Both the Ministers who visited Tumut some time ago, and the members of Parliament who accompanied them, gave every encouragement to the people that the line would be placed in the list for consideration.
The Minister of Mines gave a direct promise that it would be included in the policy, and the Minister of Works definitely said that such would be the case.
It is thought that the member for the district should use all the means in his power to have the interests of the district attended to.
