Senator GORTON (VICTORIA) (Minister for Works) - I have not seen the article referred to; it has not been brought to my attention. I do not know whether the kind of action mentioned in the article would have any effect on any Australian firms, or even whether this kind of action has been taken against an Australian firm. I do not think that is particularly material in any case. Advocating this kind of action against Australian firms trading with other firms in other countries is bad enough, irrespective of whether it is put into practice. I shall have the article to which the honorable senator has referred brought to me so that I may read it, and I shall talk with my colleague, the Minister for Trade and Industry, to see whether something can be done to stop, if it is happening, action which would I believe be repugnant to all Australians.
