Senator WEBSTER (VICTORIA) -My question, which I direct to the Leader of the Government in the Senate, concerns the proposed investment by the Petroleum and Minerals Authority in the Wambo mine. The Estimates Committee investigating the estimates of the Department of Minerals and Energy on Tuesday sought information regarding the likely expenditure of the Authority and was informed that only very minor commitments were proposed. I ask the Minister whether he will bring to the Senate a statement indicating the manner in which this Authority has evaluated the true worth of the $3.5m investment in Wambo mine?


Senator MURPHY -Regrettably I am not informed on the particular matter to which the honourable senator refers. It falls within the sphere of the Minister for Minerals and Energy, Mr Connor, and I shall refer the question to him. I cannot commit myself to doing what the honourable senator suggests because I do not know the implications of the matter. However, I shall refer the question and the request of the honourable senator to Mr Connor.
