Mr McEWEN - To the best of my knowledge, no approach of the kind mentioned by the honorable member has been made to my department by either American or French interests. It really is not a function of the Department of Trade to makethe kind of investigation, and prepare the sort of documentation, that i. think he has in mind. So far as such action applies to Australian industry, the matter is more within the ambit of the States. This is. especially so when one lays stress, as did. the honorable member, upon the decentralization aspect. However,, I assure him that if any explicit requests, apposite to the functions of the. department were made, we would give every assistance.
