Mr GREGORY - I have received the following telegram from the Primary Producers Association of Western Australia : -

This association views with alarm the Italian restriction of wool imports which is yet another retaliative measure against Australia's protective policy, and insist? that the recommendations of the Wool Inquiry Committee, particularly in regard to turill reform, bo given effect to.

I ask the Minister for Trade and Customs whether his attention has been directed to the statement made by the Vice-President of the Italian Chamber of Commerce, reported in the Melbourne Herald of the 24th July, in which reference is made to the possibility of our obtaining valuable export trade to Italy in wool, wheat, hides and tallow, if a trade agreement, at all favorable to Italy, could be agreed upon? Does the Government intend to arrange trade treaties with Italy, Belgium and other countries without further delay, so that the markets of those countries will not be closed to Australian exports?
