Mr McGRATH (BALLAARAT, VICTORIA) asked the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   Whether the Government has relaxed the embargo on the importation of potatoes from New Zealand?

2.   Has the Government been negotiating with a view to modifying the existing regulation governing the importation referred to?

3.   Has the Government appointed a potato inspector to proceed to New Zealand to supervise the sorting of potatoes for importation into Australia ?

4.   Will the Minister give an assurance that, owing to the prevalence of a disease in New Zealand potatoes known as "Powdery Scab," no New Zealand potatoes will be admitted into Australia ?
