Mr McIVOR (GELLIBRAND, VICTORIA) - I wish' to address to the Minister for Primary Industry a question which relates to an inquiry by the Tariff Board into a request by the woollen and worsted industry for tariff revision. I preface it by stating that the inquiry was held in April and May. 1955. and that a report on it was sent to Canberra in February of this year. I ask the Minister whether any decision has been reached in this matter. If not, since the delay has already been excessive, can the Minister indicate when a decision will be made? Finally, as the inquiry and decisions resulting from it are of great import to many large industries in my electorate and, indeed, to industries in the electorates of other honorable members, will the Minister undertake to have the Tariff Board's report printed and made available to all members of the Parliament?
