Mr BLACKLOW asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

With regard to the Speech at the opening of the Parliament by the GovernorGeneral, in which it was stated that it was the intention of the Government to call a conference of experts under an independent chairman to deal with the various transport services -

1.   Is it the intention of the Government to include interstate shipping in this inquiry!

2.   If so, in view pf the Hobart-Sydney passenger service ceasing in the near future, will the Government consider this matter of sufficient urgency to warrant calling the conference at an early date?

3.   Failing this, will the Government, in view of the Prime Minister's statement that there is no money for subsidizing this line, approach the State Governments of New South Wales and Tasmania with a view to subsidizing the service on a pound for pound basis?
