Senator McLAREN - Has the attention of the Leader of the Government in the Senate been drawn to a statement made last week by Mr H. D. Huyer, Chairman of Australia's largest electronics company, Philips Industries Ltd, to the effect that unless the Government makes a decision on components for colour television within the next 2 months 30,000 people could be out of work in the electronics industry? Can the Leader of the Government inform the Senate what action, if any, has been taken by the Government to safeguard the livelihood of these 30,000 people?

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON I have not seen the statement made by Mr Huyer. I will have the question directed to the relevant department. To the extent that it is then examined I have no doubt that there will be a response to it.
