Senator FOLL (Queensland) , - 1cannot agree with the views expressed by Senator Leckie. When in Great Britain last year I found that the principal retail stores displayed large posters advertising Australian primary products, particularly fruit and butter. So far as I could judge, the money expended on publicity is not being wasted. Captain Smart, the Publicity Officer at Australia House, travels all over Great Britain, and when I was in London he visited Glasgow with a cinematograph film to advertise Australia. He also visits the large retail stores, through which competitions are conducted to encourage the use of Australian primary products. I do not think that Mr. Kitchen could have studied the position very closely. Other overseas visitors have spoken favorably of the work of the publicity branch of Australia House, and although there may be room for slight improvement in some directions, I believe that Australia is advertised satisfactorily in Great Britain.
