Mr McEWEN - A panel from the timber industry, andi separately.; I understand1, a> panel from, the plywood industry, have been conferring with officers of the; Department of Trade on- this issue. Apparently it has emerged that there: are problems in; the timber- industry that are not confined to thelevel of imports of timber.. The8 facts indicate- that over the last four months- there has been a quite important fall in the level of these imports. The: question, of referring the timber industry to< the deputy- chairman of the Tariff Board, is under active discussion with the industry at present, and I expect that a final decision-, about a reference will be. taken, in the very near future.
