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?


Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON -

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.
