Senator MARRIOTT - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for

Shipping and Transport. Will he inform the Minister for Shipping and Transport that there is an erroneous but very widespread belief, both in Tasmania and on the mainland, that people not desiring to take their cars on the " Empress of Australia " and the " Princess of Tasmania " cannot book passages on those ships? Will he ask the Minister to suggest to the Australian National Shipping Line and its official agents that they should make it widely known, through normal publicity channels, that these vessels are passenger and/ or cargo carrying ferries and that passengers may travel on them without having their cars with them?
