Senator SCOTT (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I preface my question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate by referring to the Refrigeration Compressors

Bounty Bill. Is the Minister aware of the impending consequences of significant unemployment in sections of the industry, particularly in a large decentralised New South Wales area, and indeed of probable higher costs to the Australian consumer if the restrictive nature of the Bill's bounty recommendation is not quickly altered? Will the Minister indicate why the Bill has been so long delayed in its presentation to the Senate and whether its rapid appearance before this chamber will now take place?

Senator MURPHY -The question really relates to a measure which is before the chamber and therefore I think it is strictly out of order. May I indicate that certain questions have been raised in relation to the Bill, including questions by the Opposition, and that these are being looked at.
