Senator CANT (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Customs and Excise: Has H.C. Sleigh Ltd exported to C. Itoh and Co. of Japan 230,000 barrels of crude oil from Bass Strait? Who issued the export licence, special licence or export permit that allowed the export of this amount of crude oil? ls Australia so affluent in reserves of crude oil that we can afford to export it? What price a barrel did H.C. Sleigh Ltd have to pay for the oil? Was it $3.50, $2.06 or a combination of those prices? What was the export price paid for each barrel of crude oil by C. Itoh and Co? fs it the intention of the Commonwealth to continue to allow the export of Australian crude oil?
