Senator CHAPMAN asked the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   Has the Minister seen press reports and statements from exporters alleging that the preference recently given to Australian wines by Britain was being defeated by importers of Spanish and Portuguese wines, who were importing small quantities of highly-fortified wine and mixing it with low-grade wine?

2.   Will the Government place the position before the British Government with the view of inducing it to amend the legislation so that the object of the legislation will not be evaded ?
