Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs whether he has yet received a reply to questions I asked some time ago to the following effect: -

1.   Are there any embargoes in existence upon the import of goods into the Commonwealth, apart from German trade; and, if so, what restrictions are enforced, and on what commodities do they operate?

2.   Are any importations from Germany now allowed under special conditions; and, if so, to what goods do they apply, and under what circumstances?

It would 'be useful for the information of honorable senators if a reply were given to these questions before the Tariff is discussed in this Chamber.
