Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice, on 3 November 1977:

Has the Treasurer informed him of the full nature of his financial interests and responsibilities as required by the Prime Minister in his statement to the House on 16 August 1977 (Hansard, page 9); if so, do the Treasurer's disclosed interests include (a) the Treasurer or any of his family companies having held land in conjunction with either Mr Colin Cooke, Mr Paul Day or Mr Peter Leake at (i) Summerville or Mornington, (ii) in the Westernport region or (iii) on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria or (b) the Treasurer or any of his family companies having any joint interest in lands with Mrs R.Hamer.

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

The Treasurer provided me with a completely adequate statement of his pecuniary interests soon after the government was elected to office and he has updated this from time to time as have other Ministers. I take this opportunity to say that I know of no information which would detract from the high regard which I have for the Treasurer. In relation to the specific matters raised in the question, I draw attention to the information provided by the Treasurer in his answer to question 1921.
