Mr KEARNEY (CUNNINGHAM, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address a question to the Minister for Trade relating to the official opening on Monday last by the Premier of New South Wales of the new inner harbour at Port Kembla for the use of shipping in that important industrial port. Is the Minister aware of the prime importance of this new inner harbour port, which provides seventeen deep-water berths, to the future development of the Australian steel industry in particular and other allied industries in the area? Is it a fact that the new port can be expected to provide immediately a direct link with the markets of the world for steel and coal exports, thus proving a valuable factor in promoting overseas trade? Will the Minister investigate the possibility of developing this port, in co-operation with the New South Wales State Government, to the point where it becomes an outlet for the exportation of wool, wheat and other primary production
