Senator MULVIHILL -I ask the Minister for Customs and Excise whether it is reasonable to assume that he is standing shoulder to shoulder with Clyde Holding, the Leader of the State Opposition in Victoria in trying to eliminate the sale of kangaroo skin postcards?

Senator MURPHY - I understand that statements have been made that there has been a widespread sale of postcards made from kangaroo skin. I would think that kangaroo skin postcards which are posted overseas would be covered by export controls. There is a certain reasonableness in the application of the controls which apply, but I would regard the use of kangaroo skins for this purpose as entirely objectionable. If this practice is not covered by law then I think appropriate changes ought to be made to ensure that it can be prevented.
