Senator KEEFFE - I ask the Leader of the Government in the Senate whether any offer of financial assistance has been made to Queensland to cover the ravages of the cyclone currently moving up the north coast and the previous cyclone which caused up to Sim worth of damage in the tropical fruit growing areas?

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON - My information is that no request for financial assistance for flood damage has been received from Queensland. I presume it is basically the floods about which the honourable senator is speaking?

Senator KEEFFE - I am speaking of the cyclones and the damage in the Redcliffe peninsula.

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON - the only information I have relates to requests for flood damage. No request has been received from the Queensland Government as yet If- a request were received it would be given consideration in the normal way under the criteria which apply to the States.
