Senator KANE - Does the Minister representing the Treasurer recall that on 23 October I asked a question 'concerning the awarding to Mr Patrick White of a Nobel prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters? Does he also recall that I then suggested that Mr White's Nobel Prize money should be exempt from taxation and that he said he would pass my suggestion on to the Treasurer? Did the Minister pass on to the Treasurer the suggestion I made regarding Mr White's prizemoney being exempt from taxation and, if he did, can he now give the Senate the Treasurer's answer?

Senator WILLESEE -I do not remember whether the question was asked on 23 October but I do remember the suggestion that this matter be passed on to the Treasurer. I do not physically walk down and give the Treasurer such information. My staff normally handles these things. I regret that an answer has not been received. I will try to get it as soon as possible.
