Mr BURY (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question to the Treasurer relates to the recently reported unanimous decision of the board of the International Monetary Fund that there was no longer any justification on financial grounds for trade discrimination against the dollar area, a decision in which, presumably, the Australian director concurred. First, has the Treasurer given clearance to his colleague, the Minister for Trade, to cease discrimination as far as financial factors are concerned? Secondly, will this question, and the acceptance of the obligations of Article VIII. of the Articles of Agreement of the International Monetary Fund, be raised during the forthcoming discussion of Australian officials, in Australia, with officials of the fund?
