Dr J F Cairns (LALOR, VICTORIA) - Has the Minister for Trade and Industry noted question No. 2132, which has been on the notice paper since 21 October last, concerning the staffing of the Tariff Board? If he has. can he say when an answer will be available? When does he expect the Tariff Board to have sufficient staff to complete the inquiries envisaged in its reports in 1967-68. 1968-69 and 1969-70 which are not yet completed or even begun?

Mr ANTHONY - I am sorry that 1 cannot inform the honourable member when that question might be answered. All 1 can say if that the strength of the Tariff Board in respect of staffing arrangements and facilities has been increased progressively over the last two or three years. At the moment there is a request before the Government to strengthen further its . operations. As soon as I am in a position to ascertain this information I will see that the honourable member's question is answered.
