EXPERT BQIW PAT.T.S FOR PRTVATTSATTON OF VICTORIA'S PORTS

Today's urgent call by an expert body for privatisation and competition on Victoria's docks must be accepted by Labor Governments, the Federal Member for Bruce and Shadow Minister for Privatisation, Julian Beale, said today.

Privatisation on the New Zealand docks has been worth the equivalent of A$2,500 for each New Zealand farmer.

The same could happen here to farmers and other exporters if privatisation is introduced and the monopoly labour pool phased out.

The call by the Tasman Institute for privatisation is a challenge to the Kirner and Keating Governments.

The Tasman Institute has pointed the way to greater

productivity and more jobs.
