Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   No. 2, 3, and 4. No negotiations have taken place with the importers, but a delegation consisting of representatives of the New Zealand Government and the producers has recently made certain representations to the Government, and, as a result, it has been decided to send an expert at the expense of the New Zealand Government to that country, who will report to us after an investigation carried out on the spot. We shall then consider whether the embargo can be modified without danger of introducing powdery scab into the country, to obviate which the embargo has been imposed.
