Mr FORDE - I am sympathetic with the view put forward by the honorable member. The Government has endeavoured to meet the convenience of primary producers, who, like other people, have suffered considerable hardship as the result of the military call-up. which is necessary to provide the fighting strength required by this country. This is not an easy problem to solve. However, it was discussed at the meetings of the Australian Agricultural Council in Canberra yesterday and to-day, and I understand that the Council, which represents all States, intends to make a recommendation to me as to the machinery that should be established in order to give fair treatment to all primary producers who consider that they are suffering a loss as the result of the military call-up.
