Mr ERWIN (BALLAARAT, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Trade and Industry a question. In view of the many speeches made in tariff debates by the honorable member for Wakefield, and the failure of the Government to reply to his statements, certain manufacturing firms are now of the opinion that he is the spokesman for an underlying Government policy. They are also of the opinion that he is exerting influence on the autonomy of the Tariff Board. Can the Minister tell tha House whether there is any cause for concern in such statements?
