Mr HAWKER (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Commerce) - The quantity of wheat harvested in Australia has exceeded the estimate of the crop made last year, but the actual number of claims received is considerably less than was anticipated. This is due to the fact that a great many farmers have refrained from sending in their claims until all their wheat has been harvested and despatched, and can be all' covered by one claim. It is not thought that any fraudulent claims have been presented, nor that the funds available will not be sufficient to meet all just claims.
