Mr WHEELER (MITCHELL, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Prime Minister concerning trade with South-East Asia. By way of preface. I wish to refer to arrangements which had been made for the right honorable gentleman, during his recent visit abroad, to make official calls on certain South-East Asian countries. It is to be regretted that circumstances diverted the right honorable gentleman to more malodorous regions and these visits did not take place. I now ask him whether, regardless of the outcome of the present trade talks in London, he will consider requesting the Minister for Trade to arrange his homeward journey so that it will include visits to certain South-East Asian countries, and thus enable him to learn at first-hand how trade may be developed between these countries and Australia.
