Mr McEWEN - During the coming year there will be opportunities to discuss this subject, particularly within the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. Australia's general attitude to the matters that the honorable member mentions are wellknown in United States Administration circles. I am bound to point out that the only item on which a particularly high duty is imposed is wool. In relation to lead and zinc, our problem is more one of quotas than of duties. Having said that, I should point out that the negotiations to which I have referred will be possible because of the initiative of Mr. Dillon, the Under-Secretary of State for Economics in the United States Administration.
