Senator COHEN (VICTORIA) - Has the attention of the Acting Minister for External Affairs been directed to an article in the 9th October issue of the "Commercial and Economic News Bulletin ", circulated by the Commercial Bureau of the United Arab Republic

Embassy in Canberra, supporting the boycott or blacklisting imposed by the Arab Boycott Office in Damascus on Australian firms trading with Israel? As the Minister for Trade and Industry stated in another place on 15th September 1954, in reply to a question on this subject by the Deputy Leader of the Opposition, that it was the policy of the Australian Government to facilitate free trade by the Australian commercial community both ways - exports and imports - will the Government make representations to the Government of the United Arab Republic in connection with the article to which I have referred, and try to do something positive to bring about the removal of this boycott which is directed against a substantial number of Australian business firms?
