Senator BISHOP (South AustraliaPostmasterGeneral) - I should very briefly like to reply to Senator Rae. When Senator Rae raised this question last week I think Senator Wriedt was not in the chamber but the information had been given to him. The matter is the responsibility of the Minister for Manufacturing Industry (Mr Enderby). I am told that Mr Enderby was studying the report and had received the request from Senator Rae that Senator Rae be issued with a copy as soon as possible. The reply to Senator Rae's request from Mr Enderby was that as soon as he could make a copy of the report available he would. That is the position. Senator Wriedt will be informed of the request that Senator Rae made tonight with a view to obtaining more information from Mr Enderby.

In relation to the question of Tasmania, I understand that the Minister for Defence (Mr Barnard) issued a statement in Tasmania related to the sorts of examinations to which Senator Rae referred. I can only undertake to ask Senator Wriedt to respond to the invitation of Senator Rae, perhaps tomorrow.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
