Mr KERIN - My question is directed to the Minister for Primary Industry. Is it correct that Ansett Airlines of Australia imported for the use of its airlines 0.9 tonnes of white sugar manufactured in Holland? Is it correct that sugar is a prohibited import? If this is correct, what action is being taken to prevent further imports of sugar by Ansett? Will Ansett be prosecuted for a breach of the regulations?

Mr NIXON - I am unable to verify the information given by the honourable member. I will ascertain the facts, see whether what the honourable member says is correct, and give him a considered response.

Suggest corrections
