Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) - My question, addressed to the Minister for Trade relates to the Tariff Board report on timber tabled in this House on 14th May, 1958. I preface it by reminding the Minister that one of the recommendations of the board was that the Government's attention should be directed to finding a solution to the problem of freight disadvantage between domestic and imported timbers-, particularly in relation to Tasmania and Western Australia. I now ask the Minister what action has been taken by the Commonwealth Government to give effect to that recommendation. If, in. fact; some action has been taken, what advantages have accrued?
