Mr DUTHIE (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - 1 wish to bring to the notice of the Minister acting for the Minister for Trade the matter of the importation of 8-millimetre movie film, ls the Minister aware that there is likely to be a shortage of this film during the Olympic Games?

Owing to the publicity which could be given to Australia when the Olympic visitors return to their own countries through the medium of films, will the Minister increase the importation of 8-millimetre films during the next two months in order to meet the extraordinarily high demand for such films by visitors from overseas and by our own people who may wish to record the games in their own way? I feel sure that the extra cost in dollars that would be involved would be more than repaid in the publicity that we would get at a later time.
