Mr HAWKER (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Markets) - The improvement of trade relations between Australia and New Zealand has been the aim of all Commonwealth Governments during recent years. Although the dominion does not buy Australian dried fruits exclusively, it is our third best market for them. A trade agreement with the Commonwealth is in operation, and the Scullin Ministry, when imposing tariff increases and embargoes, endeavoured to extend consideration to New Zealand and not to prejudice Australia's trade with it. No doubt at the forthcoming Economic Conference at Ottawa trade relations between the different dominions as well as between the Mother Country and the dominions will be considered.
