Senator RYAN (Minister for Education)(6.20) —I can only repeat the best advice I have available at the moment. I remind Senator Puplick that the responsibility for introducing this arrangement, be it by legislation or some other means, is not with the Department of Sport, Recreation and Tourism: It is with the Department of Industry, Technology and Commerce; so the officers here are not themselves responsible for it. It is the intention of the Government to have inward duty free shopping available by 1 July and the method by which this is to be achieved is under consideration. That is all the information I have for Senator Puplick.
