Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Commerce whether he proposes to use his influence to have re-inserted in any wheat bounty bill that provision which he originally inserted when he was a member of the first Lyons Government, and which he strongly advocated as a private member of this House after it was withdrawn by the composite government, namely, that the wheat bounty shall be payable only to those wheat-growers who have non-taxable incomes? Is he still of that opinion, or does he feel that the hostility of the Country party may deter him now from doing those things which he formerly advocated ?
