Senator PROWSE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Has the attention of the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Industry been drawn to a paragraph in a leading article in an Australian newspaper of today's date to the effect that there are justifiable fears in the minds of the Japanese Government and of exporters that any foothold they have established in a particular segment of the Australian market can be capriciously closed by Australian vested interests - often United States or United Kingdom owned companies - and the closure justified on the spurious ground of balanced development? Is this statement true? Can it be justified in any way? If it is not true, will the Minister for Trade and Industry take appropriate action to correct that statement? .
