Mr GROOM (BRADDON, TASMANIA) -I direct to the Minister for Primary Industry a question concerning problems confronting King Island dairy farmers following the appointment of a receiver-manager at the local dairy co-operative. Can the Minister inform the House of the progress of any investigations undertaken by the Bureau of Agricultural Economics or other departmental officers into the economics of the King Island dairy industry? Further, can he indicate at this stage whether the Commonwealth will be making further advances to the King Island Dairy Products Co-operative for completion of the works program at its factory? Will the Bureau's report be published and, if so, when?
