Mr BURY (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question, which is addressed to the Minister for Trade, concerns a statement issued by him on 4th April regarding the importation to Australia from Japan of acrylic yarn. The Minister announced that Japan had agreed to limit its exports of the yarn to a monthly average of 45,000 lb. and that imports in January and February had averaged 56,000 lb. Is it a fact that in the first week of March imports of acrylic yarn from Japan totalled nearly 115,000 lb.? If so, will this be set off by the Japanese against future exports from that country to Australia so that the monthly average of 45,000 lb. will be maintained as from the beginning of March?
