Mr CLYDE CAMERON (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice:

(1)   ls it. a fact that the Australian National Line had negotiated an industrial agreement with the Waterside Workers Federation concerning work at roll-on, roll-off shipping terminals in which the parties had agreed to what virtually amounted to a 35-hour week.

(2)   ls it a fact that, as a consequence of his intervention, the Government has taken action to prevent the agreement from being signed or ratified.

(3)   Is it also a fact thai 3 of the loll-on, rolloff terminals built by the ANL are idle because of industrial disputes and that the Government's interference in the affairs of the ANL is causing deep concern to senior officials of the ANL.

Mr Snedden - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   and (2) I would refer the honourable member to the answer 1 gave to his question without notice on 21st October 1970 (Hansard, Page 2540).

(3)   I presume the honourable member is referring to the ANL Terminals at Port Kembla, Adelaide and Geelong which have not commenced operating at this stage, in which case the answer is no.
