Mr PEACOCK —My question is directed to the Prime Minister and is supplementary to the question I asked the Special Minister of State. Has his Government contacted the New South Wales Government regarding the substance of my previous question to the Special Minister of State? What was the form of that advice?


Mr HAWKE —I took careful note of the question which the Leader of the Opposition directed to the Special Minister of State. I concur with the answer given by the Special Minister of State. The first part of the question which the Leader of the Opposition addressed to me raised serious issues. I appreciate the way in which he asked the question and I, together with the Special Minister of State, will address myself to the issues. I can assure the Leader of the Opposition that a full answer in respect of the questions to the Special Minister of State and to me will be provided at the earliest opportunity, and, if possible, today.
