Mr Hansen asked the Minister for

Shipping and Transport, upon notice:

(1)   Has he received recommendations for the compulsory rust-proofing of mo. or vehicles.

(2)   Has he investigated the Ziebart process for rust-proofing as used in the United Kingdom.

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

(I)   No.

(2)   My Department has not investigated the Ziebart process, which is understood to relate to a bituminous coating used on finished vehicles only when specifically requested. This process is particularly aimed at preventing rust on vehicles used on roads which are treated with chemicals for de-icing purposes.
