Senator McLAREN - My question, which is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for External Territories, arises from the answer he has just given to the Senate concerning emergency food supplies for Papua New Guinea. In view of the over production of eggs in Australia, why were eggs and egg products not included in the supplies which were sent to Papua New Guinea? Will he give an undertaking to give some consideration to the forwarding of eggs and egg products to Papua New Guinea?

Senator WRIGHT - I am without information as to the availability of eggs and egg products in Papua New Guinea at the present time, but I will most willingly refer the honourable senator's suggestion to the attention of the Minister for External Territories so that consideration can be given to the inclusion of these foods in any further shipment.
