Mr HANSEN (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Minister for Customs and Excise: Has he received representations from registered breeders of budgerigars - I tell honourable members who are laughing that this is an important matter - to allow registered breeders of budgerigars to export a number of domestically raised birds. Does the Minister intend to apply to this request the principle advocated yesterday by the Acting Prime Minister in regard to another species peculiar to Australia, the merino ram - that is, that the breeders are the people to make the decision, not this Parliament?
