Mr E G Whitlam (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) am asked the Prime Minister, upon notice, on 7 November 1977:

(1)   With reference to his requirement for Ministers to inform him of the full nature of their financial interests and responsibilities (Hansard, 16 August 1977, page 9), has his attention been drawn to a report in the Australian Financial Review of 3 November 1977 of a statement by a director of Grosvenor Nominees Pty Ltd, in which Mr Peter Leake has sworn that the Treasurer has a pecuniary interest, that the company merely acts as a nominee company and that if someone is uncomfortable about his name appearing in a share register he can use the company to register his holding.

(2)   Does he consider it appropriate for a Minister to make investments or hold interests in a company in such a guise that the public cannot discover them.

Mr Malcolm Fraser - See my answer to question No. 1939.
