Senator McLAREN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Following his visit to Rome to lead the Australian delegation at the Food and Agriculture Organisation conference, will the Minister for Primary Industry take the opportunity to meet leaders of the European wool industry to assess their future demand for Australian wool and their interest in long term buying arrangements?

Senator WRIEDT - Yes, I intend to talk to the western European wool buyers in Paris and to the British buyers in London. I am hoping to see representatives of the Soviet authorities also in Paris. It is important to the Australian Government that we know the attitude of our major purchasers of wool so that we can formulate any changes which may be introduced after the wool marketing report is presented to me, in about a month's time.
