Mr SCULLY - The whole subject of meat control is now under consideration by the Government, and a committee will be appointed this week to take control of the industry generally. As to vested interests taking advantage of the present glut of lamb, the producers can well protect themselves by sending their lambs to be frozen. The price for spring lambs has already been published, and summer lambs are to be dealt with on a similar bases. That will give protection to the producers. Formerly they glutted the market with sucker lambs, but now they will be able to hold them, and get the advantage of the increased weight. The Government is alive to the position, and will do all it possibly can to protect the interests of the primary producers.
