Mr KELLY (Wakefield) (12:21 PM) I have been goaded into speaking by the speech of the honourable member for Lalor (Dr J. F. Cairns). I would like to ask the Minister for Shipping and Transport (Mr Sinclair) 1 question. If I understood him correctly, he said that keeping the Corporation at arms length from the Government was important. Then he said that for that reason it was important that the Corporation should not be a set dividend target. I cannot understand the connection between one statement and the other. Could the Minister explain it for me?

Mr Sinclair - I did say that, but I realise that there is another amendment related to this which will shortly be moved. Perhaps I can leave my explanation until then.
