Senator WRIEDT (TASMANIA) -Does the Minister representing the Prime Minister recall a question I asked on 1 7 April inquiring whether he would ask the Prime Minister and his ministerial colleagues to place a personal boycott on the sale to the Soviet Union of wool produced on the Prime Minister's property or on the properties of any of his ministerial colleagues so as to make sure that it did not go to the Soviet Union. Does the Minister recall saying that he would refer the matter to the Prime Minister? I ask the Minister whether he did refer it to the Prime Minister, and what was the result.

Senator CARRICK -I understand that the question has been referred to the Prime Minister. If there has been any slip-up on that, I will correct it. I cannot answer whether the Prime Minister has had time to consider it.

Senator WRIEDT (TASMANIA) -I wish to ask a supplementary question. Will the Minister clarify that the question has gone to the Prime Minister? When Parliament resumes can we ascertain whether the Prime Minister is prepared to answer that question?

Senator CARRICK - That is exactly what I said in my original reply.
