Mr McEWEN (MURRAY, VICTORIA) (Minister for Trade) - I understand that there is a market in the West Indies which the Australian Wine Board and the Australian Trade Commissioner in Trinidad have been examining and have decided to exploit. I understand that last year our exports of wine increased by some 2,000 gallons, and that four importing firms in the West Indies have accepted agencies for Australian wines. On the trends reported to me, I think we can expect our trade there to develop, particularly in the lighter dinner wines.
