Senator MAUNSELL (QUEENSLAND) -My question is directed to the Acting Minister for Primary Industry. Is the Government proposing to implement a scheme for the full acquisition of the Australian wool clip at the earliest opportunity? Is it the intention of the Minister for Primary Industry, on his present trip overseas, to discuss with wool buyers and manufacturers ways and means of selling wool under this system?

Senator CAVANAGH - It was one of the considerations of the Government. I do not know whether any finality has been reached. If it is a question of Government policy I do not know whether it would be proper for me to answer. The Minister for Primary Industry, while overseas, will be discussing a variety of matters. I do not think this matter is one of the main purposes of his visit. However, it may come up for consideration. I do not think I can help the honourable senator in this matter.
