Thursday, 2 November 1967


Dr Patterson asked the Minister for Trade and Industry, upon notice:

1.   How many reports have been signed by the Special Advisory Authority since 19th March 1962?

2.   In how many of these reports did the Special Advisory Authority recommend that no emergency protection was necessary on any item under reference?

3.   Which are these reports, and how many items were involved in each report?


Mr McEwen - The answers to the honourable member's questions are as follows:

1.   71.

2.   In 24 reports the Special Advisory Authority advised that no emergency protection was necessary for some or all of the items under reference. In five of these reports the Special Advisory Authority advised that no emergency protection was necessary for the particular industry under reference. In one other (Trichlorethylene) the Special Advisory Authority advised that in his opinion additional protection was necessary but as the Tariff Board's Report, dealing with the question of permanent protection, had been signed he considered the question of temporary protection was no longer relevant.

3.   The reports are listed in the following table. The particular items have been identified wherever possible, and where this has not been practicable for all goods concerned, the principal items have been shown.

 

Commonwealth Properties (Question No. 591)


Mr Scholes (CORIO, VICTORIA) asked the Minister for the

Interior, upon notice:

1.   How many Commonwealth establishments are there in the Shires of Corio, Queenscliff, Bellarine and Bannockburn and the cities of Geelong, Geelong West and Newton and Chilwell?

2.   How many of these properties are the subject of ex-gratia payments to these shires?

3.   Are these payments based on normal municipal valuations?

4.   If not, what method of valuation is used?

5.   Are those responsible for valuing Commonwealth properties sworn valuers?


Mr Nixon - The answers to the honourable member's questions are as follows:

1.   Sixty-one.

2.   Ex-gratia payments in lieu of general rales are paid in respect of twenty-two properties.

3.   Yes, except that in five cases the valuations assessed for rating purposes are being disputed by the Commonwealth. The action taken by the Commonwealth in this regard is comparable with action open to private landholders who consider rating valuations to be not reasonable.

4.   The 'Commonwealth Valuers and the State Valuer-General have been requested to confer in an endeavour to reach agreed valuations in the five cases in dispute.

5.   Yes.
