Mr GRAHAM (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) -Has the Minister for Transport been informed of statements made during the Tasmanian election campaign by the Premier of Tasmania to the effect that if his Government is re-elected it will challenge the two airlines agreement in the High Court of Australia? Has the Minister's attention been drawn to a report in last Saturday's Australian that a mainland company had contributed large sums of money to the Australian Labor Party in support of the challenge to the two airlines agreement, with the intention of establishing a third national domestic airline? Can the Minister inform this House whether there was any official communication on this important subject between Mr Neilson and himself prior to the opening of the Tasmanian election campaign?
