Mr ALLAN FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the

Minister for Supply some questions concerning the severe American restrictions on the importation of lead and zinc. Is it the official view that these restrictions are arbitrary, savage and ruthless? If so, is this. Government going to sit down under these restrictions? Is it the view of Ministers that we can do nothing but go cap in hand and1 then accept this tremendous blow to Australian industry? Is it a fact that the Government has known for many months that these restrictions were likely to come into effect? Has any really effective, case been put before the American Govern-, ment, and, if so, how does it come about that such savage restrictions as these are now imposed?
