Senator POKE (TASMANIA) - Has the attention of the Leader of the Government in the Senate been drawn to reports suggesting that Irish businessman, Mr Anthony Davies, is making $40^000 a year selling high fashion Irish woollen dresses for as much as $100 each and that many of his keenest customers are the wives of Australian woolgrowers? Can he assure the Senate that the

Australian Government is making every endeavour to assist and promote the work of Australian fashion designers in an effort to allow other Australian wives - not just those of graziers - to afford to buy garments made from wool?


I have not seen the statement so I cannot give an intelligent answer to the question. But I do know that the promotion of Australian wool is the lifeblood of the industry. I have yet to meet anybody from the industry or, in fact, from Australia as a whole who does not do everything possible for the promotion of Australian wool.
