Mr FORDE (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) - Having regard to the Prime Minister's recent statement that, in view of the intended holding of the Imperial Economic Conference at Ottawa, consultations had taken place with the representatives of many primary industries, I ask him if consultations have also been held with Australian manufacturers? Since the subject of British preference will probably be discussed at the conference, has consideration been given to inviting Australian primary producers and Australian manufacturers to send representatives to Ottawa, if possible, to consult with the Australian delegates there? Will a statement be made before the delegation leaves Australia, by the Leader of the Government, or by the Leader of the Australian delegation, as to the intentions of the Government regarding trade treaties generally ?
