Mr WHITE (BALACLAVA, VICTORIA) - An application was made some months ago for permission to import from Germany a large quantity of semi-manufactured cement known as clinker. The application was held over until my return from overseas, when Cabinet disapproved of the free entry of that material. I understand that the matter has not yet been finally dealt with, and that the interested parties on both sides are anxious to know their position in regard to it. Will the Minister for Trade and Customs say whether the decision of the Cabinet has been reversed, or whether the matter is being reconsidered? Have the representations which have been made come from a section of the Cabinet or from outside persons?
