Senator SIM (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Is the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Industry aware of an attempt by the textile industry of the United States of America to tie up the flow of wool textiles throughout the world by persuading the- wool textile exporting nations to come to an international agreement on wool textile trading? Would such an agreement have a detrimental effect on the Australian wool industry? If so, will the Minister make the strongest representations to the United States Government, pointing out the damaging effect of such an agreement on Australia's major export industry and upon the Australian economy?
