Mr GUY (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - In connexion with the 'Government's proposal to assist in the establishment of plants for the dehydration of mutton, can the Minister for Commerce tell me whether it is a fact that his department has laid down the condition that no assistance shall be given unless a minimum of 500 carcasses is available daily for treatment?

Mr SCULLY - No, there is no definite regulation.

Mr GUY (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - The Minister's engineer wrote and said that.

Mr SCULLY - He may have acted on his own initiative, but there is no definite regulation, and applications for assistance in the establishment of de hydration plants will be fully investigated by the department. In no circum stances should I consider having s hard-and-fast regulation in that respect. Applications will be dealt with in a common-sense manner, and consideration will be given to every aspect.
