Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) - Is the Minister for Transport aware that there is serious congestion on passenger trains, .particularly those on the main trunk lines? Has his attention been drawn to the use of sleepers on the trains? What has been done to provide reasonable accommodation for those who are compelled by their public duties to travel? Will he review the privilege enjoyed by some members of Parliament to have a compartment to themselves to the disadvantage of other travellers, so that incidents such as occurred last night may not be repeated?
