Mr McEWEN - The Government does pursue a policy of restricting or preventing the export of strategic materials to mainland China. The judgment as to what represents, from time to time, strategic materials, is exercised by the Department of External Affairs which, in this regard, is, I am sure, in contact with other governments which similarly exercise restrictions. I have no doubt that any permit issued with the approval of the Department of External Affairs would not be for an item which otherwise would not have been available to mainland China.
