Mr CLAY (ST GEORGE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question to the Minister for Trade arises from the near tragedy which befell the furnishing fabrics industry so recently, and I ask it entirely without malice. Is it true that the Government is disillusioned by and disappointed with the results which have flowed from its actions in abolishing import controls, as was demonstrated plainly for all to see by the tragic decline in our overseas reserves? Further, is it the Government's intention to reimpose import controls either later this year, or very early next year?
