Mr CLARK (DARLING, NEW SOUTH WALES) - When does the Prime Minister propose to make to the House the statement that he promised yesterday would be made in relation to the restrictions on the imports of lead and zinc into the United States of America? Will he make immediate representations to the United States Government for the easing of restrictions on imports into that country of Australian lead and zinc, with particular emphasis on the extensive market in Australia for United States goods, our adverse balance of trade with that country, and Australia's commitments to the United States on dollar loans? Will the right honorable gentleman also consider having the tariff amended in order to give preference to countries with which Australia has a favorable balance of trade?
