Senator LAUCKE (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - 1 address a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. Has the Minister's attention been drawn to the highly successful wool sales which were conducted yesterday by the private enterprise wool marketing organisation, Economic Wool Producers Ltd? Has the Department of Primary Industry made an evaluation of the monetary advantages which could accrue to the wool industry generally from greater use of the selling procedures and techniques adopted by this organisation?

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - I did see the article to which the honourable senator has referred. Although T do not have any detailed information about a study carried out by the Department of Primary Industry I assure the honourable senator that the Department is well aware of this method of marketing wool and is watching this operation very closely. Should I have some further information to add to what I have already said I shall make it available to the honourable senator.
