Mr STREET (CORANGAMITE, VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Minister for Trade and Industry. Will the Commonwealth Government support the strong opposition by the Australian Woolgrowers and Graziers' Council to increases in rates of freight for wool in the AustraliaUnited Kingdom Europe trade and, until the Australia-United Kingdom ' Shippers Association and its constituent organisations have had sufficient time to review and to investigate any proposal put forward by the Australian Tonnage Committee, support the extension of the existing agreement for the 1970-71 season and, because of the comparative disadvantages suffered by wool in the freight rates charged and the current low wool prices, support a 15% reduction in the rate of freight for wool?
