Senator BOSWELL (Leader of the National Party of Australia) (6.39 p.m.) —I thank Senator Bolkus for that assurance. It will give comfort to those 12 people who have had to exit their farms, receive the $45,000 displacement allowance after having lost everything, and then have the creditors descend on what is remaining—which is the $45,000. The minister has given an assurance that, if the creditors are successful in obtaining some or all of that $45,000 the government will give sympathetic consideration in compensating them for any loss. I thank the minister for that assurance.
