Mr McCOLM (BOWMAN, QUEENSLAND) - Is the Minister for Territories aware that trade union circles in Darwin claim that in the handling of cargoes there costs are approximately only 20 per cent, chargeable to labour and about 80 per cent, to other stevedoring charges? Does the Minister consider that this is a reasonable proportion of costs? Is he aware of any official requests having been made for an investigation into the cost of handling cargoes in the port of Darwin?
