Mr Whitlam asked the Minister for the Interior, upon notice:

Will he bring up-to-date the information on comparative electricity costs in major provincial cities (Hansard, 5 May 1971, page 2627).

Mr Hunt - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The information has been supplied in the past by the relevant electric supply authorities. The collation of this information into a statement of comparative electricity costs is attended by difficulties. There is a range of factors which affects costs and returns and because differences can arise in the interpretation and subsequent use of these figures it is considered preferable for the honourable member himself to seek the information. The addresses of the authorities whose figures have previously been given are supplied below.
