Mr CORSER (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) - This is not an exceptional season in Queensland.

Dr EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - At a time when practically every dairy farmer in Southern

Queensland and Northern New South Wales was trying to secure a reasonable return for his produce to enable him to recoup his drought losses, Labour interests were sufficiently powerful to reduce the price by something like 20s. per cwt. in New South Wales. The same thing will happen again if Labour has its way, and that is why, in season and out of season, we urge that despite what is said by the Labour party, it is necessary that there should be in this House and in the country a strong body of producing representatives who will insist upon a fair deal for the primary producer.
