(Question No. 1649)


Senator Morris asked the Minister representing the Minister for Territories, upon notice, on 25 February 1987:

When does the Government propose to act to ensure that travel agents in the Australian Capital Territory are subject to the same licensing requirements, including membership of a travel compensation fund, as applies in NSW, Victoria, Western Australia and South Australia.


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

In November 1985 I announced that travel agents licensing legislation would be introduced in the ACT. At this stage it is expected that, subject to other priorities, the necessary legislation will be ready by the end of 1987.
