Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Leader of the Government v/ho represents the Prime Minister in this chamber. What is the difference between the price per barrel of crude- oil now imported into Australia and the price per barrel fixed for oil from Bass Strait and other indigenous areas? What is the annual saving to Australia as a result of this difference? What would bc the increase in the price of petrol if indigenous oil were now sold at the same price as imported oil?


Obviously I could not provide information of that nature at question time. I suggest that the question go on notice. As always I will attempt to get a prompt answer for the honourable senator, lt seems to- me that that information should be available and I will get it as quickly as possible.
