Mr HAWKER (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Has the attention of the Minister been called to a report in yesterday's Melbourne Argus, in which the Australian Trade Commissioner in Canada, Mr. L. R. Macgregor, states -

It is almost certain that a Canadian-New Zealand trade treaty will be negotiated in the near future which should place New Zealand butter on an equal basis with Australian as regards tariff preferences.

Is it a fact that the Australian-Canadian trade treaty, which was recently negotiated, contains no clause which would prevent it from being more or less nullified by other treaties which may in the near future be made by Canada with other countries?
