(Question No. 1110)


Senator Peter Rae asked the Minister representing the Minister for Transport, upon notice, on 5 September 1984:

(1) Can the Minister for Transport, following the recommendation contained in the House of Representative's Standing Committee on Expenditure's report on lighthouses, dated December 1983, that the Minister establish a referral committee, to include the Australian Lighthouse Association, which would explore alternatives for continued manning at lighthouses which are to be automated, advise if the Committee has been established; if so, who are the members; and if not, why not.

(2) Has the Minister or the Department of Transport consulted with the Australian Lighthouse Association since the Standing Committee on Expenditure issued its report.


Senator Gietzelt —The Minister for Transport has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

(1) No. It would be inappropriate for me to act on any of the recommendations in this report before the Government's decisions relating to the report are announced.

(2) No.
