Mr DRUMMOND (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Minister for Primary Industry a question related to that asked by the honorable member for Hume concerning imports of mutton into the United States of America. Have any steps been taken to market wether mutton, and particularly merino wether mutton, in Europe in packaged form, especially in West Germany, where I understand there may be a suitable market? In view of the importance of this trade to the wool-growing industry, the stability of which would be promoted by the disposal of this excellent meat in such trade, will the Minister confer with his distinguished colleague, the Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Trade, in order to achieve that end if no action has already been taken?
