Mr HALLETT (CANNING, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the Minister for Shipping and Transport and Acting Minister for Trade and Industry. Will he say what progress has been made in establishing shore facilities at the three major Australian ports for the purpose of receiving container cargo due to arrive early next year on vessels operated by the two shipping services, Associated Container Transportation Ltd and Overseas Containers Ltd? Will these facilities be completed on schedule? Will the Minister say whether agreement has been reached regarding the freight rates for these services? If it has not, when will such decision be made and when will the details be known?
