Senator LAUGHT - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. Following my general question on Tuesday to the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Industry on the moves of the new Labour Government in the United Kingdom in relation to import tax, I now desire to direct a specific question to the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. A wine industry spokesman in South Australia has represented to me that the new British import tax on Australian wine is a crippling blow to the hope of increasing sales in the United Kingdom. Will the Minister obtain for me precise information as to whether the tax applies to Australian wine? If it does, will he please understand these genuine fears of the wine industry and do what he can in forthcoming negotiations with the United Kingdom to alleviate the position?
