Senator CANT (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Minister for Customs and Excise. Is it a fact that since the commencement of production of natural gas from Bass Strait the previous Government allowed the export of 8 million barrels of liquid petroleum gas from that area? Does that quantity represent approximately 4 years' supply of Australia's requirements?

Senator MURPHY - I am asked a question that is based on statistics. All I can say is that I assume from the honourable senator's vast knowledge of the subject, his deep interest in it over a number of years and his membership of committees concerned with the subject, that Senator Cant is undoubtedly stating the correct position. If it is any different, I will let the Senate know.
