Mr HUGHES - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : - 1 and 2. Neither Western Australia nor any other State has agreed to supply any specific quantity or proportion to New South Wales.

3.   Supplies will probably not be drawn by the Australian Wheat Board from Western Australian stocks.

4.   No. Under the pooling system it is immaterial from which State supplies of wheat or flour are made on account of any specified contract made by the Australian Wheat Board. The sales to New South Wales and other States are being regarded as oversea sales; therefore, the proceeds are pooled so that the sale will be on account of all the pooling States.
