Senator MURPHY -On Tuesday, 26 November 1974, in answer to a question from Senator Guilfoyle I promised to provide the Senate with details of action taken by the Department of Customs and Excise in regard to dumping in the last 1 2 months and to confirm my statement that no difficulty is being caused by a shortage of staff. I can now assure the Senate that the investigating staff of the Department overseas is quite adequate to deal with any dumping investigations which may become necessary and that where dumping action becomes necessary it will be taken promptly. I have here details of action taken in relation to dumping in the last 12 months. I seek leave to incorporate the list in Hansard-

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Webster)- Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted. (The document read as follows)-


In addition an Industries Assistance Commission report on injection moulding machines recommended no antidumping action but that these goods be kept under review. As a result of this review anti-dumping action has recently been taken to protect the local industry.

A constant review of normal values is carried out on all commodities subject to anti-dumping action.

Dumping Complaints Received Since 1.12.73

Thirty-eight (38) dumping complaints have been received in the period. Of these twenty-two (22) have been resolved without anti-dumping action being necessary.

The remaining sixteen ( 16) are still under examination and of these it would appear six (6) will require antidumping action to be taken.
