Mr McEWEN (MURRAY, VICTORIA) (Minister for Trade) - I do not know whether the honorable member's figures are right. If they are right - I am not challenging them - I would not have the slightest doubt that the predominant item of trade represented in the sales by Australia to these countries would be wool. The honorable member ought to know that wool is sold by public auction in this country and has been so sold for 100 years. The only inference that I can draw from the honorable member's question is that the Australian Labour Party would wish to interfere with the public auction of wool.
