Mr BOWDEN - Has the attention of the Minister for Markets been drawn to a report that although vessels trading from Australia to the United States of America have hitherto shipped sufficient Australian fruit, particularly oranges and apples, to meet their requirements during the voyage to and from America, the vessels have been compelled to dump all the fruit that they had on board when they reached San Francisco and to ship American fruit in its place ? Is the Minister able to take any action to remove this disability, or to ensure that American vessels trading to Australia shall be similarly treated?
