Mr WHEELER (MITCHELL, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I should like to direct a question to the Minister for Primary Industry. Has the Minister seen recent reports of a statement by a consultant to the New South Wales Egg Marketing Board that the board has left it a little late to find a replacement for the British market which has been lost as a result of the United Kingdom Government's action in subsidizing local production? Has the Minister noted that the consultant said, The board is not licked yet provided it goes out and looks for business "? Does the Minister consider, from his own knowledge and study of overseas marketing, that a primary industry board such as the New South Wales Egg Marketing Board is sufficiently well equipped to develop new markets, and has the necessary know-how, and, if not, are other agencies available to undertake the very important negotiations that are necessary?
