Senator POKE (TASMANIA) - I direct a question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Further to a question which I placed on the notice paper at his invitation on 26th April 1972, I now ask him whether he has seen an article in the 'Sunday Australian' of 30th April headed 'Gunn Drops $7.6m offer to United States'. In view of the public disquiet on the probable sale of properties known as Mataranka, Roper Valley and Coolibah in the Northern Ter ritory and Mount Oscar and Arahana in Queensland to overseas ownership, will he use his best efforts to obtain an answer to my previous question at the earliest possible time?


Within the limitations of my physical capacity and the time available, I try to obtain answers for honourable senators as promptly as is possible having regard to the fact that they are directed on occasions to departments other than my own. So the answer to the honourable senator's question is yes, I will do my best to obtain an answer to his previous question.
