Mr FULLER - Is the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture in a position to announce plans made by Drug Houses of Australia Limited for the cultivation on the largest scale possible of nicotianarustica in Tumut and district in the coming season? If so, what is the estimated net return per acre to growers? Is it a fact that 97 per cent, of this drug used in Australia is now imported at a cost of 5s. per lb? Will the Minister consider compelling Drug Houses of Australia Limited to increase the guaranteed price of 9d.. per lb. now offered to Australian growers ?
