Mr DUTHIE (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - I ask a question of the Minister for Trade and Industry on behalf of myself and the honorable member for Braddon. I understand that the Australian mushroom industry has made representations to the Minister. Has he yet made a decision to seek protection for this young and important industry? If not, will he give immediate and urgent attention to this matter in view of the threat to the industry from the huge volume of imports of canned mushrooms, estimated to be worth £2 million, which will be coming in from Formosa during the next 12 months?
