(Question No. 4851)

Mr Tuckey asked the Prime Minister, upon notice, on 11 November 1986:

Did you receive a letter from the Shire of Kent in Nyabing, WA, dated 2 December 1985, and was a reply not forwarded until 9 September 1986; if so, what was the reason for the delay in responding.

Mr Hawke —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

On 6 December 1985 I received a letter (dated 2 December 1985) concerning a taxation matter from the Acting Shire Clerk, Shire of Kent in Nyabing, WA.

My Department acknowledged the letter on 16 December 1985 and referred it for the Treasurer's attention, who has since provided a reply.
