MINISTER FOR MINERAL RESOURCES, AND MINISTER FOR FISHERIES PECUNIARY INTEREST DISCLOSURE

The Hon. R. T. M. BULL: My question without notice is addressed to the Minister for Mineral Resources, and Minister for Fisheries. Further to your reply that it was necessary to resuscitate your company Beirut Sydney Publishing

Company Pty Ltd for the purposes of legal action, can you inform the House exactly when the company was resuscitated and the exact dates of your interest in that company?

The Hon. E. M. OBEID: I do not see the point you are trying to imply here. I made it quite clear that the company was resuscitated to take the appropriate legal action against another party. That action was eventually successful in the courts. That was the reason for the resuscitation of the company. There is nothing more that I can add to that.
