Mr NAIRN (Perth) .- If the board is to be the only insurer, I do not think that the growers will have any effective protection. An insurer should be a person of substance, able to- pay if mishap should occur. In connexion with one of these boards, a loss of approximately £250,000 was incurred. Even if a moderate loss had to be borne in connexion with apples and pears, what funds would the board have to meet any claim? I understand that it has no funds, and u not likely to have any substantial amount. The growers should have some assurance that in case of mishap they will get that for which they are insured. The proposal of the honorable member for East Sydney (Mr. Ward) is impracticable.
