Senator Button —On 27 February 1985 (Hansard, pages 241-242) Senator Walters asked me, as Leader of the Government in the Senate, a question concerning alleged reports that the Prime Minister had rung leading exporters requesting them to repatriate funds to prop up the Australian dollar.

The Prime Minister has supplied the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

There is no substance to the alleged reports.

Daintree and the north east Queensland rainforests are priceless world heritage. They are under threat now. This Bill will protect them. I urge all senators to support this Bill.
