Mr Whitlam asked the Minister for External Affairs, upon notice:

Will he inform me, as ,be Acting Minister promised on 30 September (Hansard, page 1861) whether iron and steel are on the list of strategic materials which Western countries, including Australia and Japan, have agreed not to export to China.

Mr McMahon - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

I have already answered a similar question in the House on 14 October when I told the honourable member for Bowman that I had nothing to add to the replies given by the Minister for Trade and Industry and the Acting Minister for External Affairs during my absence. I said on that occasion that I had instructed my Department to have a further look at the question which would, if necessary, be referred to the Cabinet.
