Mr PROWSE (FORREST, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Since the AngloAmerican Trade Agreement provides for a reduced rate of duty on American apples and pears landed in the United Kingdom by the 1st and 15th April respectively, by which dates Australian apples and pears are arriving there, I ask the Minister for Commerce to state what steps are proposed to prevent the subsequent marketing, in conflict with Australian arrivals, of excessive quantities of American fruit landed earlier, at the reduced rates of duty and stored in the United Kingdom?
