Mr FitzPATRICK - Is the Minister for Primary Industry aware of the concern of the citrus industry at the potential flood of grapefruit imports in juice and fresh form into Australia? Will these imports destroy the economics of the industry which was specially developed in response to home market demands? Is the industry further threatened by South African interests proposing to import South African concentrate juice to be reconstituted and offered for sale in the Sydney market area? Will the Minister heed the requests of my colleague the honourable member for Riverina, the State member for Broken Hill and myself and take action to deny entry to further dumped imports which could min the industry and in the long run harm the market to the detriment of consumers?
