Senator POKE (TASMANIA) - Can the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs inform the Senate of what information the Government has given to Sir William Gunn to enable him to make an intelligent contribution to the conference of the International Wool Textile Organisation on the marketing of Australian wool? If Sir William does not know the Government's decision on the wool acquisition scheme, how can he put Australia's case to such an important conference?


Senator WRIGHT - I doubt whether this matter comes within my responsibility as Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs. However, I would not take the step of advancing in public the briefing that the Government has given to Sir William Gunn for the purpose of the conference referred to. The second part of the question asked by the honourable senator is hypothetical.
