Mr LUSHER —I ask the Treasurer: Will the 9c excise on oil apply to marine diesel oil and marine fuel oil for bunkering ships? Will the 20 per cent sales tax on oil apply to marine diesel oil and marine fuel oil for bunkering ships? If so, has the Treasurer assessed the cost of these imposts to the shipping industry and their impact on freight rates?


Mr KEATING —As I said earlier, we have received representations from this industry along with other elements of the community which will be affected by the changes. I announced to the House earlier that we will be examining those representations and making a statement as necessary.
