QUESTIONS - SOLAR ENERGY


Senator DAVIDSON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Minerals and Energy. I refer to a Press report of a claim made by Professor Watson-Munro that today Australia has only a 10-year supply of oil left and a warning that research into the field of solar energy is urgent. I ask: Can the Minister say whether the information available to the Government supports this claim concerning oil? Has the Government any program of research into solar energy? If so, are any results available? If not, will the Government pursue this research and advise the Senate of the progress made?


Senator WRIEDT -I ask the honourable senator to place that question on notice.
