Question No. 272


Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Communications, upon notice, on 26 May 1983:

Has action been taken to meet user requirements for insurance arrangements for postal articles, following the report of the Public Inquiry into the Monopoly Position of the Australian Postal Commission; if not, will the action be taken.


Mr Duffy —The answer to the honourable member's question, based on advice from the Australian Postal Commission, is as follows:

Australia Post is presently examining ways of implementing the recommendation of the Committee. Australia Post agrees with the comment in the Report of the Committee of Inquiry into the Monopoly Position of the Australian Postal Commission that a need exists for an insurance option in the postal service.
