Senator WEBSTER - With your permission, Mr President, I wish to direct a short supplementary question on the same matter to the Minister representing the Minister for Customs and Excise. Will the Minister assure the Senate that proper investigations will be carried out into the request for bylaw entry from Japan of 220,000 metric tons of 34 inch diameter steel gas pipe and assure the Senate that by-law entry will not be granted under item 19 of the Customs Tariff unless the Minister for Customs and Excise is assured that an Australian made suitable equivalent is not available?

Senator COTTON - The honourable senator may be assured that his question will go direct to the Minister for Customs and Excise.
