Mr Shipton asked the Minister for Business and Consumer Affairs, upon notice, on 19 October 1977:

(   1 ) Who are the quota holders, and what are their respective entitlements by category, for the imports of apparel since the introduction of quotas in July 1 976!

(2)   Have any quotas been transferred. If so, to whom and on what terms and conditions.

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

(   1 ) There are in excess of 7,000 quota holders for all commodities. Their names and more particularly their entitlements to quota have not been published to date. However with the recent change in import quota arrangements to provide for the transferability of quota instruments in most circumstances, consideration is now being given to publishing the names of quota holders.

At the same time, consideration will be given to the publication of individual entitlements.

(2)   Quotas for apparel have only been transferred by' reason of one company taking over another company.
