Mr HAWKER (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Markets) - I am glad to be able to report to the House that the payments already made approach half of the total amount of the bounty. The work of distribution in New South Wales is slower than in the other States. If the honorable member will bring to my notice any particular cases in which there is complaint, I shall endeavour to expedite them. Steps are being taken to hurry the distribution of the bounty, and a special accountant has been sent from the head office to the department in Sydney. As the officials of the department and the farmers obtain a better understanding of the procedure, the work of distribution is being considerably accelerated, and I hope to have a final cleaning up within a reasonable time.
