Senator McLAREN - My question, which is directed to the Minister representing the Treasurer, arises from an answer supplied to me recently by the Treasurer in relation to a question I asked about the collection of excise on alcoholic beverages. I now ask: Why is it that the amount of revenue collected by way of excise on beer in the Northern Territory, the Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania and South Australia is not available for publication?

Senator COTTON - I have no idea. I noted that New South Wales appears to have been left out of the list of beer drinkers, which appals me. I cannot believe that it is true. I shall ascertain the figures.
