Mr BRIMBLECOMBE (MARANOA, QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to the Minister for Trade and Industry. Is it a fact, as has been stated, that the direct shipping service to South American ports, as opposed to other services involving trans-shipment, results in a saving of £18 10s. a ton in freight charges? Has the Minister been informed that there is a possibility of the discontinuance of this direct shipping service to South America by the Japan Australia Line? Will the Minister make investigations to ascertain whether this is correct and, if it is, will he do all he can to have the service continued in the interests of Australian exporters?
