Mr FALSTEIN (WATSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister for Commerce been informed of the decision of the High Court of Australia, given, to-day, under which a sum of £320 was awarded to a plaintiff named Tonking against the Apple Pear Board, being the difference between what was paid to the plaintiff by the hoard and what was obtained by the board from the sale of his fruit? Is the Minister in a position to make a statement in regard to the matter, particularly in relation to the effect upon other growers who have been paid less than their fruit actually realized ?
