Mr SWARTZ (Darling Downs) (Minister for National Development) - by leave - In view of the absence of the Prime Minister (Mr McMahon) I will undertake to have those figures checked and also to provide the Leader of the Opposition (Mr Whitlam) with information on the arrangements regarding the payment of the subsidies. I think the Prime Minister referred to subsidies that are paid to MacRobertson Miller Airlines. I do not think Ansett Transport Industries Ltd was mentioned at that time. But the subsidies referred to are paid for intrastate services. I can have the matter checked, get the full details, and see that the information is provided to the honourable gentleman.

Mr Whitlam - This also includes subsidies for purely Northern Territory services such as those provided by Connair Pty Ltd.

Mr SWARTZ - They are internal services too.
