Mr BURY (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address a question to the Acting Minister for External Affairs concerning the very welcome appointment of that veteran of Australian trade negotiations, Sir Edwin McCarthy, as Australian ambassador to the European Economic Community. Will it be to the Minister that the ambassador will report in this capacity? If so, will the Minister bear in mind the very great interest in the activity of this community which primary producing and commercial interests in Australia have? Acting in conjunction with his col leagues, the Treasurer, the Minister for Trade and the Minister for Primary Industry, will the Acting Minister for External Affairs arrange that, as far as practicable, the reports of Sir Edwin McCarthy dealing with Australian interests in the operations of this community will be made available to the public?
