Senator CANT (Western Australia) - I took note of the remarks of the Minister for Air (Senator Drake-Brockman) in reply and thank him for them and the statement that he would have a look at my speech. I do not doubt the integrity of the Minister when he says he will look at my speech when he gets the opportunity and when Hansard is published but I want to impress some facts upon him. During the consideration in Committee of Appropriation Bill (No. 1) last December the Minister told me that there was involved a further charge of $6,521 for the telephone service to the factory of Kailis Gulf Fisheries Pty Ltd. He then went on to say:

Both departments agreed that the final amount decided on should be approved. The amount paid to Kailis was $335,000.

The Hansard report then reads as follows:

Senator Cant - Has that been paid to Kailis?
