Mr TURNBULL - My question, which is addressed to the Minister for Trade and Industry, does not relate to the wool industry. Did the right honorable gentleman, during his recent trip overseas, in any way sense that closer co-operation between trade commissioners representing Australia would be of advantage in maintaining old markets for Australian goods and establishing new ones? If so, will he further consider the suggestion that he appoint a roving trade commissioner who could co-ordinate the work of Australian trade commissioners throughout the world in a way that has proved successful in private enterprise and who could at any time proceed to parts of the world where Australia is not represented by a trade commissioner and where reports indicate that there may be a market for Australian products?
