Senator WRIGHT (TASMANIA) - The Minister representing the Minister for Minerals and Energy will recall that over several weeks I have been asking for payment of revaluation compensation to a small group of small tin miners on the north-east coast of Tasmania. Last week I was informed that inquiries had been made into those applications. Will the Minister tell me whether he is pressing for early payment of revaluation compensation to those miners. I assure him that the delay in payment is a matter of considerable embarrassment to several of them.

Senator CAVANAGH - I am not fully informed as to what the honourable senator has been seeking for several weeks because it is only this week that I have been representing the Minister for Minerals and Energy. As it is apparent that the applications have been processed I shall take the matter up with the Minister today and see whether early payment can be made if it has been approved.
