Senator MAUNSELL (QUEENSLAND) - Will the Minister for Agriculture inform the Senate of the recommendations of the meeting held in Washington aimed at establishing a world body in an attempt to stabilise the marketing of meat? Does the Minister agree that something has to be done in the near future if a serious economic crisis in the industry is to be avoided?

Senator WRIEDT - Yes, I agree. I think everybody agrees. I have answered questions on this very point over the last two or three weeks. I cannot add to anything I have said previously. As I have said previously, talks will continue at official level and liaison will be maintained between the countries concerned. I am not aware of any further information. If there is further information, I shall obtain it from the Minister for Overseas Trade under whose auspices the meetings were held.
