Mr KEARNEY (CUNNINGHAM, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Customs and Excise. Is it a fact that the Government proposes to abolish normal customs control and supervision of the storage and use of dutiable and excisable oil products on which import duty and excise duty have not been paid? If this is so, does it mean that, in future, the oil companies or their agents will determine the total amount of duty and excise that they will pay? Finally, is it a fact that under this proposed system, the administration costs of the Department of Customs and Excise will increase in New South Wales by about £8,000?
