    (ii)estimates by the Australian Wheat Board that Australian wheat farmers will now receive $50 million less for the 1993-94 crop than first estimated, and

    (iii)the contribution to this situation of the higher levels of US export subsidies over the past year; and

  (b)asks the Minister for Trade (Senator McMullan) to take up the matter with his ministerial counterparts in the United States.
