Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES)

My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Industry. Is the Minister aware that snap frozen cauliflower, broccoli and brussel sprouts are being imported into Australia from South Africa and are being sold in Australia under a number of well-known Australian brand names? Will the Minister investigate this matter and ensure that accurate labelling of all primary products is insisted upon, especially of those being imported from foreign countries for sale in Australia and in competition with Australian primary products?

Senator COTTON - I thank the honourable senator for drawing my attention to this matter. If he will give me any details which he has additional to those that he has already mentioned, I will give the information to the responsible Minister.
