Dr EVATT (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I wish to ask the acting Minister for Trade a question. Is it a fact that an important delegation, including representatives of the Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited and Mount Isa Mines Limited, is to visit the Far East, including' the mainland of China, with a view to obtaining or extending markets for lead and zinc from Australia? Does the enterprise; or the delegation, have the support of the Government? I assume that it has; that is why I ask the honorable gentleman this- question. It: has been suggested that the delegation will not leave Australia until late next month. Could the Minister interest himself in the matter and try to. expedite the departure of the delegation because of the obvious urgency of its mission?
