National Line were to provide a feeder service by sea from other than the three key ports, and if, as claimed, freightage from Tasmania is too dear, for which reason that State is to be excluded from the containerisation service to the United Kingdom, could not the disparity involved in the extra cost from Tasmania be absorbed by the whole system so that its effect on United Kingdom to Australia freights would be infinitesimal'?
