Correspondence from Senator the Honourable David Brownhill, Deputy Leader of the National Party in the Senate, former Parliamentary Secretary for Trade, following the retirement of Shane Stone as Chief Minister of Australia's Northern Territory. Extensive mail, fax and telephone messages were received from the Asia Pacific region, throughout the Territory and from Australia wide, hence, a small selection of the correspondence has been included in the archives. Extract: ''I appreciate all of the assistance you provided to me when I was Parliamentary Secretary for Trade. Your initiative in promoting the benefits of exporting our Australian produce to our Asia neighbours is to be commended''.
