Mr McEWEN (MURRAY, VICTORIA) (Minister for Trade) - I quite understand the significance of tea and the cost of tea in the Australian scene. I do not feel able to answer so general a question as the honorable member has asked, but I assure him that there is sufficient flexibility in the administration of import licensing to enable a full and fair consideration of any particular proposal that may be advanced. 1 should be glad to arrange for such a consideration to be given to a proposal of the kind outlined by the honorable member.
