Mr HAMER (ISAACS, VICTORIA) - Has the Treasurer made any assessment of the likely effect on the national economy of the ban by the Australian Council of Trade Unions on French trade? In view of the fact that the ban is certain to be diplomatically completely ineffective, is he as Treasurer in favour of it?

Mr CREAN (MELBOURNE PORTS, VICTORIA) (Treasurer) - I have made no assessment of the effects that this ban will have on Australia's trade and individually I do not intend to do so. I regard that to be within somebody else's jurisdiction. In any case, at the moment it is hypothetical and I refrain from comment.
