(2)   Did the Australian National Line, as a partner in the Pacific Australia Direct Line, consult the Government before this step was taken; if not, is the Australian National Line now at liberty similarly to withdraw from the Australia Northbound Shipping Conference if current discussions in that Conference do not produce acceptable results to the Australian National Line, and, if not, what were the special circumstances that warranted the withdrawal from the Australia/New Zealand and South Sea Islands Pacific Coast Conference.

(3)   Will the Government immediately investigate whether it is in Australia's interest to maintain membership of the Australia/New Zealand and South Sea Islands Pacific Coast Conference and other conferences.
