Mr ROBINSON (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Trade and Industry. Has progress been made with the Australian sponsored move for an international conference to study a proposed shipping rationalisation plan designed to save Australia more than £6 million a year in freight charges to Britain and Europe? Further, has the Australian plan envisaged by the Department of Trade and Industry - whereby major reorganisation of freight handling procedures would be encouraged - been outlined to shipping, commercial and governmental authorities in an attempt to offset rising freight costs to Australian exporters?
