Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Transport. I do so following earlier questions I asked of the previous Minister for Transport. I ask this Minister: What is the position regarding the establishment of a set of rules and conditions on travel insurance that will give better protection to the unfortunate people who, through no fault of their own, have had to cancel their overseas bookings, many of whom have been penalised by hundreds of dollars?

Senator CHANEY - I remember seeing something about this matter, which may in fact have been the questions previously asked by Senator Young. I have heard the honourable senator express concern for people who make forward bookings and who, through no fault of their own, then are unable to meet those bookings, and thereby lose substantial sums. I am not able to recall with sufficient clarity what I have seen to give him a definite answer. I will seek the information he requests and let him have it as soon as possible.
