Senator ARCHER —I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Transport. Can the Minister advise the present program for the reports of the Inter-State Commission on the Tasmanian freight equalisation system and the carriage of wheat? When is it expected that the report will reach the Minister and how soon after that will it be tabled?

Senator GIETZELT —I understand that both the reports referred to by Senator Archer are currently being printed. As most honourable senators, and, I am sure, Senator Archer, will recall, under the statutory requirements all such reports have to be tabled within 15 sitting days of their receipt by the Government. The Government gives an assurance that those requirements will be carried out.
