Senator MURPHY - I ask the Leader of the Government whether, in view of the questions asked in this Senate concerning these transactions with Jetair and the obvious concern of honourable senators to be enlightened completely on the matters relating to them, he will, on behalf of his own Department and of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, table in the Senate all the documents relating to this transaction?

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON - 1 cannot say at the present time whether anything will be tabled. The transaction has to be completed first. I see no problems at all about this matter as far as the Department of Supply is concerned because it will just follow the normal procedure. I take on notice the part of the question relating to the activities of the Department of Foreign Affairs. As I pointed out 2 days ago, the sale is going through. I have given all the information which is within the province of my Department, with the exception of the price,- which I will be happy to disclose as soon as the sale is concluded.
