Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Trade whether, in any future modification of import restrictions, he will give consideration to allowing exporters who develop new markets to have added to their quotas a portion at least of the value of those exports, provided that the goods they wish to import are of an essential nature. In the event of any future modification of the import restrictions will the Minister also consider referring to the Tariff Board the question of protecting essential industries such as the boot industry which, at the present time, is complaining about unfair competition arising out of what it calls a flooding of the Australian market with goods manufactured in various Asian countries?
