Mr COHEN (ROBERTSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Minister for Trade and Industry aware of the continuing growth and the enormous potential for growth in the tourist industry in Australia? Will this assist in. earning valuable foreign currency and offsetting the decline in earnings in the rural sector of the economy? If so, will the Government upgrade the tourist industry by appointing a separate Minister for Tourism, by low interest loans through the Australian Industry Development Corporation for the building of accommodation and by grants or loans to bodies such as the National Trust and private organisations which will develop tourist attractions of a distinctly Australian character?
