Senator JESSOP (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) -Will the Minister representing the Minister for Minerals and Energy inform me what percentage of petrol used in Australia is derived from local crudes? As mineral exploration has suffered severe setbacks as a result of disincentives created by the Government's policies, what does the Government intend to do to encourage a stepping up of oil exploration so that Australia can become independent of overseas sources?
