Senator ABETZ (Minister for Fisheries, Forestry and Conservation) (1:24 PM) —The honourable senator might have to repeat the second matter that he raised, but I can indicate that the Grains Council has been informed. It has been written to and informed that in the minister’s statement of expectations to the EWC a request that the commission consults widely with the industry will be included. The Grains Council of Australia is a valuable voice for the grains industry, and the minister expects that it will continue to work with the EWC in a constructive, two-way relationship.
