Mr HAROLD HOLT - The honorable gentleman raises what is quite, obviously a matter of policy, and an aspect of policy which it would not normally be the Government's practice to determine except in conjunction with its general budgetary programme. However, I shall have the request examined. It is my impression that over recent months there has been some increase in the world market price of tin and this, of itself, may provide some inducement to tin producers, who were formerly not finding production highly profitable. However, the wider aspect which the honorable member has. raised will be carefully examined.
