Senator MCCLELLAND (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister for Civil Aviation. Has the Minister's attention been drawn to a full page coloured advertisement in the " Sydney Morning Herald " of last Monday associating the Shell Oil Company of Australia with commercial aircraft flown by Ansett-A.N.A.? Will the Minister inquire whether the controlling power behind the Ansett-A.N.A. financial structure is that section of the international oil cartel represented by the Shell Company? Will the Minister also inquire whether the international oil cartel has any predominating influence in Australian privately owned airlines generally?

Senator HENTY - Apparently the honorable senator is suggesting that in the air transport industry, there are some faceless men as mere are in the Federal Executive of the Australian Labour Party. If this is his imputation, I daTe say he will have time to find out in due course.
