Senator ROCHER (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. Given the localised nature of the economy in most parts of the north-west of Australia, with its reliance on the pastoral industry in general and the beef industry in particular, will the Minister for Primary Industry intervene to reverse the decision of the Australian Meat and Livestock Corporation to halve beef exports from the Kimberleys to the United States of America?

Senator SCOTT -I note that the question is referable to the north western part of Australia and to the beef industry in particular. I shall seek from the Minister for Primary Industry a comprehensive reply.
