Mr Whitlam m asked the Minister for Trade, upon notice -

What has been the (a) capital; and (b) published profit of each of the shipping companies in the Australian - United Kingdom-Continent Shipping Conference in each of the last ten years?

Mr McEwen - The answer to the honorable member's queston is as follows: -

The published accounts of these shipping companies over a period of years are not readily available in Australia. Recently I furnished the Leader of the Opposition with an interim reply on this matter, in which I undertook to obtain fuller information from our overseas posts. When this information is received I will make it available to the House.
