Mr SCULLY (Gwydir) (4:14 AM) .I support the amendment moved by the honorable member for Wimmera (Mr. Wilson). I do not think that the Minister for Commerce (Sir Earle Page) fully appreciates the fact that a representative of the Council of , the Australian Wheat-growers Federation would be of valuable assistance in the deliberations of the committee. The Victorian law provides for the appointment of a wheat products price committee of which the chairman must be a person who has no business of growing, selling, or milling wheat, or baking or selling bread. Of the other members one will be a representative of the flour-millers, one of the wheat-growers, and one of the consumers of bread and other foodstuffs manufactured from flour, and one a masterbaker. I do not see why there should be any difference between the constitution of the Victorian committee and the constitution of the Commonwealth committee. The amendment is a wise move and I trust that the Minister will accept it.

Question put -

That the proposed sub-clause (Mr. Wilson's amendment) be inserted.
