Mr Jacobi asked the Minister for Business and Consumer Affairs, upon notice:

(   1 ) Have discussions been held with the States concerning the recommendations of the Trade Practices Review Committee that restrictive covenants over land should be regulated.

(2)   Will the proposed legislation to regulate restrictive covenants affect in any way State or local government regulation of town planning and building requirements.

Mr Howard - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   No.

(2)   The recommendations of the Trade Practices Act Review Committee in relation to restrictive covenants over land expressly recognised that it would be outside the scope of the Trade Practices Act if a restriction upon a person using his land to trade in a particular way was imposed by a public authority operating pursuant to law (such as town planning rules). Any action proposed by the Government on this matter will be anounced when it has fully considered the Committee 's recommendations.
