Mr HAWKER - I am glad to be able to inform the House that the special super tariff imposed by Germany during the last few days is not to apply to imports from Australia. This decision is the result of representations made through the High Commissioner in London and the British Ambassador in Berlin. For the first time in many years the German Government has exempted Australia from the list of countries to which retaliatory duties have been applied, and this welcome decision is due, not to any special concessions granted by the Commonwealth to Germany, but to the evidence, furnished by recent tariff schedules and the withdrawal of embargoes, that the present Government has regard to the interests of the export industries.
