Dr J F Cairns (LALOR, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Trade and Industry whether he has noticed the extensive published criticisms made by the Textile Council of Australia of the Tariff Board report on man-made fibres and in particular the submissions that the rales of duty decided in that report are unrealistic, that the report is out of date, and that there are many apparent errors of judgment in it. Has his attention been directed to the opinion of one company within the industry that the report will bring to an end the growth of the man-made fibre industry in Australia? Is the Minister concerned about these criticisms from the industry? Will he take any notice of a request for an immediate review of the position before the report is put into effect legislatively?
