Senator SCOTT - The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

1.   The search of Mrs Weaver's house was one of four simultaneous investigations. It was necessary to co-ordinate the four operations. Mrs Weaver advised the customs officers that her husband might not return for possibly a long time and that she had no idea when he would return. The search took approximately 20 minutes. Mrs Weaver assisted the officers in the search, which resulted in the discovery of two transceivers.

2.   It is the usual practice to give a receipt for seized goods only upon request.In this case the officers were not askedto give a receipt.

3.   Legal action has been commenced in connection withthe two transceivers.
