Mr Jacobi asked the Prime Minister, upon notice, on 2 1 February 1 980:

Is it a fact that the Treasury has received repeated requests for amending legislation by Federal Life and General Insurance commissioners and also received criticisms by other concerned authorities and bodies to which it has failed to respond satisfactorily; if so, will he direct that administrative responsibility for all insurance matters (including intermediaries) be transferred from the Department of the Treasury to the Department of Business and Consumer Affairs.

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

I do not propose to change the administrative responsibility for insurance matters. With regard to the technical matters raised in the question, I suggest that the honourable member's inquiries should be more properly directed to the Treasurer.
