Mr BARNES (MCPHERSON, QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Acting Prime Minister in his capacity of Minister for Trade. In view of the depressed prices at present being received by producers of Australian honey, due to the unloading by Communist China of 4,000 tons of that commodity on the market in Western Germany - and that country is Australia's best customer - at uneconomic prices, and the obvious responsibility of Western Germany, because of its political affiliations, to support the Western bloc, will the Minister try to obtain some preference for Australian honey producers?
