Senator WALSH (Minister for Resources and Energy)(10.09) —The Minister for Trade, Mr Lionel Bowen, has been to Japan once since this Government was formed. The Minister for Primary Industry, Mr Kerin, has been there two or three times; I am not sure about that. I am advised that the Minister for Trade discussed the beef question when he was in Japan last year. Although we are not formally dealing with primary industry at the moment, if there is anything that Mr Bowen or Mr Kerin care to add in response to the points raised by Senator Boswell, I will ask them to do so.
