Senator HENTY (TASMANIA) (Minister for Civil Aviation) - I do not know whether all the State Premiers have approached the Treasurer on this matter, but I believe there has been an approach by one of them. There is a normal procedure by which the States approach the Commonwealth Treasury, and 1 understand that the rule is for a grant in aid to be made on a £1 for £1 basis.

Senator Drake-Brockman - They want more than that.

Senator HENTY - If the honorable senator puts on the notice paper that portion of his question which relates to a request by the States for more than the usual grant, 1 will ask the Treasurer to deal with it.
