Mr FORDE (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) - On perusing to-day's issue of the Commonwealth Gazette, I noticed that a proclamation has been issued by the Minister for Trade and Customs removing the tariff embargoes on a number of items, but comparing the present list with the previous one, I notice that certain embargoes have been lifted. I refer to such articles as biscuits, candles, confectionery, eggs in shell, lard, preserved meats, dried milk, peanut butter, canary seed, &c, as well as a number of products of secondary industries. Will the Minister make a brief statement as to what inquiries were made before these prohibitions were removed, and whether the primary producers who were affected by the action taken wereconsulted beforehand?
