Mr HUTCHINSON (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - I understand that late last week discussions took place between representatives of the Department of Commerce and Agriculture,' the Prices Branch and the Victorian meat industry, regarding ceiling prices operative from the end of June through the month of J uly. Can the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture state whether any decisions were reached as a result of that conference, and, if so, is he in a position to make a statement to the House upon the su bject ?

Mr SCULLY - As a result of the conference a recommendation was made and approved by the Prime Minister fixing prices until the end of July. In addition, the Government has now guaranteed to take all meat off the market at ceiling prices until the 1st October.
