(Question No. 4656)


Mr Ruddock asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 22 September 1986:

Further to Question No. 3869 placed on notice on 1 May 1986 (a) have more than 4 months passed since the question was first placed on notice, (b) when can I expect an answer to the question and (c) what does this delay say about the efficiency of the internal reporting system in his Department.


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

(a) Yes

(b) & (c) The honourable member's question upon notice of 1 May 1986 was inadvertently overlooked as it referred to questions that had been replied to on 4 September 1984 and 10 April 1986. It came to attention when Question No. 4656 was placed on notice. I apologise to the honourable member and refer him to the answer to question No. 3869.
