Mr Scholes asked the Minister for Trade and Industry, upon notice:

(1)   Has the committee which was set up to inquire into the textile industry in Australia completed its investigation.

(2)   If so, will he make a statement to the house at the earliest opportunity on the future of the textile industry in Australia.

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

(1)   and (2) I have not been able to identify any committee which has been set up to inquire into the textile industry in Australia. On the 7th September, however, I tabled Tariff Board reports dealing with the textile industry. These concerned woven shirts and knitted shirts and outergarments. When tabling the reports I made a statement in Parliament explaining the decisions the Government had made on tbe reports.
