Senator MURPHY - My question is directed to the Minister for Customs and Excise. Is it a fact that the selection of the Swedish film for the Sydney Film Festival was made by the Arts Committee of the Swedish Film Institute? Is the Institute a semi-governmental body, the chairman of which is appointed by the Swedish Government? Is the acting president also a government appointee? Is the Institute financed by the Swedish Government to enable it to make Swedish films? Will the Minister also tell us when he will have discussions with the Director or other persons concerned with the possible liberation of this film for Australian audiences. Will he also tell the Senate the decision that he has made as soon as possible after that discussion?
