Senator McLAREN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Industry. Will the Minister, in the interests of safety, give urgent attention to the flood of electronic equipment coming into this country and take appropriate action to have this equipment thoroughly tested and inspected before use, particularly that equipment which originally was designed for 110-volt operation but has been modified for 240- volt operation?

Senator COTTON - I shall direct this question to the Minister for Trade and Industry. If the honourable senator can tell me of any specific cases of equipment which he believes to be unsafe being imported into this country, I will direct those to the Minister at the same time.
