Mr N A Brown (DIAMOND VALLEY, VICTORIA) -I ask the Minister for Business and Consumer Affairs: Has his attention been drawn to the concern of the Victorian Football League that the Trade Practices Act has been invoked in a dispute regarding the clearance of three footballers? Is there not a danger that the use of the Trade Practices Act will have a damaging effect on sport in general and on Australian Rules football in particular? Was it ever the intention that the dead hand of the Trade Practices Act should intrude into sport as well as into business? Will the Minister give consideration to having the Trade Practices Act amended to exclude sporting organisations from the provisions of the Act?
