Mr RODGERS (WANNON, VICTORIA) .- When the late Mr. Pratten visited New Zealand recently he discussed with the Government of that dominion the reciprocal trade treaty between the two . countries. I should like to know whether any fresh negotiations have been initiated. We should, if possible, restore cordial trade relations between Australia and New Zealand. Formerly the balance of trade; between the two countries was substantially in our favour in certain respects, and we ought to do what we can to restore that desirable state of affairs. Has the Government invited the Government of New Zealand to discuss the proposals for doing so?

Sitting suspended from 12.^7 to 2.S0 p.m.
