Mr McEWEN - I would not be able to confirm, even if it were within my knowledge, that the Secretary of Agriculture had made certain recommendations to his President. I have had personal discussions with Mr. Ezra Benson on this matter. This being the year when all parties to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade are free to make proposals to their trading partners on tariff matters, it is publicly known that Australia proposes to raise this issue. I can do no more than express the hope that we may be able to reach some better understanding with the United States Administration that will ease the difficulties of the Australian wool industry. The honorable member and all other wool-growers can be assured that this Government will throw all its efforts into achieving something substantial along those lines.
