Senator COTTON (New South Wales) - I shall be as brief as possible. I thank the Minister for Primary Industry (Senator Wriedt) for his remarks. They allow me to make one or two brief observations. He said that the annual report of the Australian Industry Development Corporation was tabled today. One would want to read it and look at it a little more carefully. The amendment proposed by Senator Byrne for an examination of this whole matter by the Select Committee on Foreign Ownership and Control is one that meets with my approval, and has from the very beginning of this operation because I have been anxious to see the matter examined in depth. The many questions I would normally raise in debate on this matter I can raise in that Committee when it goes to work. The Government has my assurance that the Opposition will facilitate the work of the Committee and its examination of this whole proposal.
