Mr LAIRD SMITH (for Mr. Greene) (Honorary Minister) - On the 13th May the honorable member for Echuca (Mr. Hill) asked the following questions: -

1.   What is the actual profit made on the sales of cornsacks bought on behalf of the farmers by the Government?

2.   How much of this amount is to be returned to the wheat-growers?

3.   How and when is it to be done?

The information was then being obtained. I am now able to furnish the honorable member with the following information : -

1.   £130,036.

2.   The whole amount.

3.   The amount will be paid to the Australian Wheat Board for distribution almost immediately.
