Mr Enderby asked the Minister for the Interior, upon notice:

(1)   How many petrol service stations are operating in Canberra.

(2)   What are the names of the oil companies who own these service stations and supply oil and petrol to them.

(3)   What was the (a) date when each service station site was acquired, (b) name of the particular oil company concerned and (c) price paid for each site.

Mr Hunt - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   There are 61 petrol retailing outlets operating in Canberra at present. Crown leases of a further six sites have been granted specifically for use as motor service station sites, and buildings are under construction upon them.

(2)   and (3) Information about the identity of the supplier of oil and petrol, and the price paid in respect of transfers and sub-letting arrangements subsequent to the initial grant of the Crown Lease, is not readily available.

Not all of the Crown Leases on which the business of a petrol service station is now operating were granted for this specific purpose. Many of them would have been used initially for some other purpose in keeping with the purpose clause of each lease.

The following schedule gives some details of the Crown Leases on which the present petrol and oil retailing outlets are operating. It might be noted that there is one service station operating at the Canberra Airport which is the subject of a lease arranged by the Department of Civil Aviation.
