Senator YOUNG - Is the Minister representing the Minister for Minerals and Energy aware that early in October I placed many questions on the notice paper, all of which have been answered with the exception of one. I ask whether the Minister is aware of that question in which I asked:

Will the Government have any control over the already established Moomba-Gidgealpa pipeline in South Australia. Will the Federal Government construct the feeder pipeline to the proposed petro-chemical plant at Redcliffs, South Australia. Will the Government have control over the feeder line.

Will the Minister endeavour to obtain an answer for me as soon as possible, because the other place will rise soon for the summer recess, or will we in South Australia have to wait during the recess period in a condition of great concern, wondering whether the Federal Government will try to take over the pipeline, including the feeder pipeline in South Australia?

Senator WRIEDT -No, I was not aware that an answer to that question on notice was still outstanding. I agree that Senator Young is entitled to an answer before the House of Representatives rises. I shall contact the Minister for Minerals and Energy immediately after question time with a view to obtaining an answer.
