Senator BENN (QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Industry. Will the Minister arrange for 50,000 or 60,000 , tons of canned apricots, peaches and pears to be imported into the Commonwealth so that they may be sold in the Murray Valley and in cities and towns in

Victoria? Will he also arrange for a few million bushels of wheat to be imported from Canada and sold to the millers in New South Wales and Victoria? Will the Minister then proceed to Kingaroy and the Atherton Tableland and explain to the peanut growers there why peanuts produced in Papua and New Guinea with slave labour were shipped to the Commonwealth for sale in competition with locally grown peanuts?
