Senator McLAREN - My question is addressed to the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Industry. Why are importers of electronic equipment not required by law to submit this equipment for test and approval before its use in Australia? Will the Minister take action to ensure that all imported electrical equipment meets the required Australian standards?

Senator COTTON - 1 shall take up this matter with the Minister for Trade and Industry, although 1 wonder whether it does not more appropriately belong in the province of the various State governments which have certain powers of inspection. I shall make inquiries and find out what the truthful position is.
