Mr UREN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct my question to the Acting Prime Minister in his capacity as Minister for Trade. The Government has frequently denied that there are restrictions on the exporting of goods from Australia by subsidiaries in this country of overseas companies, and I ask the right honorable gentleman whether he is aware of a statement by Sir Norman Kipping, a leading British industrialist, to the effect that although some United Kingdom companies allow their Australian branches to export to New Zealand, the Philippines and the Pacific islands, not many British companies allow their branches in this country to export to Singapore and Malaya. If the Minister is aware of this statement, what action does the Government intend to take in order to rectify the situation?
