Mr McEWEN (MURRAY, VICTORIA) (Minister for Trade) - It is quite true, as the honorable gentleman has pointed out, that, as the Australian economy grows and, particularly, as Australian manufacturing industry grows, the necessity to earn more exchange to service that industry becomes increasingly important and urgent. To this end, it is a normal function of the Trade Commissioner Service to keep a very alert watch, not only on our traditional markets, but also on any new markets for good's that could be exported from Australia. I can assure the honorable member that the service is under instruction to watch very carefully for such opportunities. However, I might send trade commissioners a special message as a result of the honorable member's question.
