Mr CURTIN (Fremantle) .-! support this bill. The act passed in 1936 contained anomalies which had the result of depriving certain applicants for the fertilizer subsidy of any payments, because their applications were not received by the prescribed date. A bill was passed which sought to rectify that and certain other anomalies, but apparently it was not completely successful in dealing with the problem. The persons whose claims will be validated by the passage of this bill are legitimately entitled to amounts aggregating £722. A number of wheat-growers in Western Australia made personal representations to me on this subject. I believe that their circumstances were absolutely identical with those of the majority of people to whom this subsidy was paid. That being so, it is proper that the applications with which this bill is concerned should be paid. I sincerely trust that this will be the last we shall hear of the anomalies of the 1936 act.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
