Mr RICHARD FOSTER (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   When will the projected further payments on wheat scrip be made?

2.   On what scrip, and what amount in each State?

3.   Will the Minister endeavour to have such payments announced simultaneously in each State through the press, so that farmers may receive the good news as early as speculative holders ?

Mr HUGHES - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : - 1 and 2. This matter is under consideration at present. An immediate answer cannot be given.

3.   Announcements of such a nature are made to the press late in the afternoon, so that the information may be conveyed to growers as quickly as to other persons interested.
