1.   Will he inform the House of the amount of the first payment to be made for this season's wheat?

2.   Will he make the amount as high as possible?

3.   Will he stipulate that payment shall be made direct to the grower so that he will be in a position to pay his accounts pro rata from money received, in view of the fact that the price received for wheat is below the cost of production?

Mr Scully - An announcement concerning the first advance on the 1941-42 wheat crop will be made at an early date.
