Senator TURNBULL (TASMANIA) - I remind the Minister representing the Minister for Civil Aviation that 2 weeks ago I asked him whether he would find out why Australian citizens were penalised to the extent of about 20 per cent in paying for exactly the same service from Sydney to London and return as do other nationals. I was wondering whether the Minister has the answer.

Senator CAVANAGH - The honourable senator raised this matter in an adjournment debate recently, and I thought that the answer was supplied then. It was certainly supplied in the other place by the responsible Minister, who said that there will be no alteration in the fares of Qantas Airways Ltd, which is subject to an agreement on fares, and that he did not accept that this was in fact robbery as the honourable senator suggested. If there is any further information on this matter I shall obtain it for the honourable senator, but I think that the information he seeks has been supplied.
