Mr WILSON (Wimmera) (4:10 AM) . - I move -

That the following new sub-clause be inserted: - (2a.) One member of the committee shall be a person appointed on the nomination of the body known as the Council of the Australian Wheat-growers' Federation."

The wheat-growers should have a direct representative on this important committee. There is no body which is more competent to nominate that person than the Council of the Australian Wheatgrowers Federation, with which the wheat-growers' organizations in all of the States are affiliated. It would be appreciated if the Government would accept the amendment. The organization has played an important part in bringing this the home-consumption price plan to fruition. The wheat-growers claim that they as well as the consumers should be represented. The usefulness and utility of the committee would be served, if the amendment were agreed to.
