Mr FAIRBAIRN (FARRER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Trade whether he or the Minister for Primary Industry had discussions with either the chairman of the Australian Wool Bureau or the Government nominee on the bureau before they went to London for the International Wool Secretariat meeting. If so, did he discuss with them whether or not Australia should " go it alone " in increased wool promotion if the other partners in the International Wool Secretariat are not prepared to increase their contributions? Did he discuss whether the headquarters of this organization, to which Australia is by far the largest contributor, should be transferred to Australia? Can he give the House any information about the results of this meeting so far?
