Mr PATERSON - The Empire Marketing Board has made an offer to the Dominions to provide assistance for the carriage of stud stock up to £50,000 per annum for two years. Any contributions from this fund will be conditional upon an equivalent amount being contributed by or through the oversea Government concerned. In response to the request of the Empire Marketing Board for a scheme to be submitted, the Commonwealth Government has already formulated proposals and placed them before the State Governments and the representatives of the oversea shipping companies for consideration. As soon as I am in a position to do so I shall be pleased to supply the honorable member with further information on the subject.
