Mr MILLAR (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) -I ask the Prime Minister: In view of the favourable reference in the Fraser Island environmental report totimber harvesting activities on Fraser Island, will he give an assurance that such activities will not be affected in the event of Fraser Island being declared part of the National Estate?

Mr MALCOLM FRASER - On behalf of the Government I can give that assurance. Timber harvesting has been part of the activities on Fraser Island for a very long while and on the reports that I have had it is an activity which there is no cause to doubt. Those involved in it may have any concern they might have felt put at rest.
