Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) - I ask the Treasurer whether he is aware that the Australian manufacturing industry has been showing increasing signs of a general slowing down. This trend appears to be noticeable particularly in the industries producing consumer goods, building materials, construction equipment and automotive parts. I therefore ask the Minister: What action is the Government taking to implement corrective action to stimulate demand for locally manufactured goods? Is it the intention of the Government to reduce our import bill by deflationary methods by further reducing industrial activity?
