Mr SCULLY -When I first came into office, I considered this matter of the drying of eggs for export, and everything was done to expedite the erection of factories in the various States. South Australia was the last of the States to apply for dehydration machinery, because it was considered that the position there in regard to eggs was more satisfactory than in the other States. Already in Victoria and New South Wales there were factories owned by private enterprise, but I insisted that all new factories should be under the direct control of the Department of Agriculture in the State concerned, or should be run co-operatively under the direction of the Egg Marketing Board, so as to ensure that the suppliers would be adequately protected. In this respect, South Australia is receiving favoured treatment. I am not aware that South Australia is being discriminated against in any respect as compared with other States, but I shall institute inquiries.
