Senator GIETZELT (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Leader of the Government in the Senate seen reports suggesting that the Prices Justification Tribunal is receiving applications for price increases from companies which are insisting that their applications be dealt with on a confidential basis? Is this in accordance with the provisions of the legislation? If not, what action can the Parliament take to ensure that all such applications are open to public examination so that companies can justify their applications for price increases?

Senator MURPHY -I think it would be better if I gave the honourable senator a considered answer after referring to the legislation.
