0PP0SITI0K SPOKESMAN OH THE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY

Senator Robert Cotton the Liberal Party spokesman for the Manufacturing Industry points out that the comments by the Labo^ Party on the Liberal/Country Party Manufacturing Policy are irrelavent and inaccurate,, All the policies

of the Liberal/Country Parties are designed to protect the consumer, it is the consumer who is now suffering from shortages of supplies, from steadily rising prices.

We are seeing a shortage of goods reminiscent of the worst position during the war years, we are seeing inflation at a frightening rate and we are seeing a complete inability to face up to these problems by Labor.

The Liberal/Country Parties are determined to increase productivity and the supply of goods, are determined to combat inflation,and the best possible remedy for the people of Australia is to get^rid of the present irresponsible

inefficient Labor Government.

With regard tc Dr„ Cass’s comments on environment and pollution the Liberal/Country Parties are well-aware of the problems here, and are also aware of the need for conservation. It is imper bive that the Federal Government works with the States

on these matters,and to take advantage of the excellent work being done by them in these fields^
