Mr PEACOCK (Leader of the Opposition) —Mr Speaker, may I have your indulgence? Can you confirm that the two companies you have mentioned, one prima facie which more logically would seem to be a subsidiary of an international or overseas company and the other named Logica Pty Ltd, which I assume is an Australian company, are both Australian companies?


Mr SPEAKER —At first sight I must answer no. I will investigate the matter and advise the House later in the day.


Mr Peacock —It is pretty important.


Mr SPEAKER —I take the point made by the Leader of the Opposition. As he is aware in these cases there are often problems with getting the appropriate organisations. I am not trying to dodge answering the honourable member; I want to be completely sure that the advice I give him is accurate.
