Senator COLE (TASMANIA) - I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Shipping and Transport and in doing so I direct his attention to an advertisement by Tasbureau Holiday Tours. What factors are responsible for the following difference in charges set out in the advertisement: Twelve days Sydney/Sydney from £52 including travel on " Princess of Tasmania "; fourteen days Sydney/ Sydney from £82 including travel on the " Empress of Australia "? Could this difference in charges have an adverse effect on bookings to sail from Sydney on the " Empress of Australia "? The purpose of my question is to ensure that the many thousands of people to whom these holiday tours will appeal will know why the base rate for the fourteen days tour should be £30 dearer than the twelve days tour.
