Senator SIM (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - To continue the interest in Ansett Transport Industries Ltd and Thomas Nationwide Transport Ltd, I direct my question to the Minister for Civil Aviation. Is the Government satisfied that the public interest would be served by a takeover of Ansett by TNT? If it is not so satisfied, what action can the Government take to protect the public interest?

Senator COTTON - I thought that I would have made the position clear but if I have not I will continue, to try to do so. The honourable senator, and indeed all honourable senators, must be sure in their minds that the Government will have full regard to the public interest in the whole matter that is under review.
