Mr JESS (LA TROBE, VICTORIA) - In asking my question of the Minister for the Interior I assure him that 1 personally have no doubts as to the importance of backbench members of Parliament relative to ministerial typists and other staff. I ask: Is the Minister aw.ire that backbench members of Parliament on arrival at Canberra airport this morning could not be provided with transport to Parliament House to attend important meetings until ministerial secretaries and typists had been so transported? Will the Minister please advise me or the House of the reason for this confusion and endeavour to see that it is not repeated?

Mr HUNT - The answer to the first question is no and the answer to the second question is yes.
