Mr RIORDAN - Has the attention of the Minister for Trade and Customs been drawn to a report furnished by the Governor of Fiji, Sir Murchinson Fletcher, to the Fijian Government on the marketing of Fijian bananas in Australia to the effect that, in addition to the adjustment of an overcharge of11d. a case, he had asked that charges amounting to approximately 2s. a case should be remitted, which would reduce the marketing expenses of each case by 3s., thus enabling the fruit to be sold at a profit ? Has the Commonwealth Government given any consideration to this request !
