Mr SCULLY (GWYDIR, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Commerce) - I have been informed that a meeting of the nature referred to by the honorable member has been held. Although I, as the Minister for Commerce, and also certain officers of my department, were vitally concerned in the issues to be dealt with by the meeting, no invitation was received by us to be present. Despite this concerted action by certain vested interests, the Government considers it to be absolutely essential to the best interests of the woolgrowers of Australia, and also to the safe custody of certain wool purchased by the Government of the United Kingdom, that a number of country appraisement centres shall be established, and it intends to take action to that end.
