Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Is the Minister for Customs and Excise aware that there is an over-production of Japanese manufactured cars in Japan? Has the Minister any evidence that cars fully assembled in Japan or reassembled from a knockdown vehicle of Japanese origin are being sold at lower prices to Australian buyers than to buyers in Japan? Has he received any complaints from Australian based interests about this matter? If so, what consideration is being given to taking action on this matter?

Senator MURPHY -The Department of Customs and Excise has been investigating complaints that Japanese cars have been dumped on the Australian market. Those investigations are continuing and they will take into account what Senator Drake-Brockman has said. I shall advise the Senate in due course.
