Mr TOWNLEY (DENISON, TASMANIA) (Minister for Supply) - The honorable member for Perth came to me with this problem about a week ago. I was quite interested in it, because the industry means a big investment in Western Australia, in which the honorable member is particularly interested. I sent a cable to the Australian Embassy in Washington asking our ambassador there to get into touch with the Minister for Trade, who was then in the United States of America, and ask him to call on representatives of the company and discuss the matter with them further. I had a reply stating that, for obvious reasons in view of what had happened in Montreal and other places, the Minister for Trade would not be able to undertake that interview, but that the ambassador himself would call on this company. Since then, I have had no further information.
