Mr ADERMANN - As to the recommendation of the Committee of Inquiry into the dairy industry that an international conference be convened, the Government decided that it would be advisable that the Minister for Trade and I first survey the implications of that recommendation and report back to the Government. I have had some discussions with the dairy industry itself on this matter.

As to the honorable member's suggestion that a conference between the nations mentioned by him be convened, I can say that some discussions are going on at the moment between the members of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade organization, but as this matter really comes more under the jurisdiction of my colleague, the Minister for Trade, I think he would be more acquainted with what is happening in those discussions.
