(Question No. 4315)

Mr Braithwaite asked the Minister for Trade, upon notice, on 19 August 1986:

Has he taken an interest in the appointment as a consultant to the Western Australian office of his Department of a person known to him personally; if so, (a) what was his involvement, (b) who was the person, (c) what stage was reached in the appointment, (d) was the person made a conditional offer and (e) why did the appointment not proceed.

Mr Dawkins —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The question is so elliptical that neither I nor my Department nor Austrade can fathom what it is about. If the question is phrased in more specific terms I will provide an appropriate answer.
