Mr BERNARD CORSER (Wide Bay) (2:14 AM) . - The honorable member for Ballarat (Mr. Pollard) uttered several contradictory statements which have not helped the position. He declared that the Government's proposals could not effect the socialization of the means of production because the States owned th land? He uttered a good deal of nonsense, because he knows that the policy of the Labour party includes the socialization of the means of production, distribution and exchange. If he were honest with the farmers and the AttorneyGeneral (Dr. Evatt), who asked him to speak, he would admit that he opposes the amendment because he is pledged to support the socialization of the means of production, distribution and exchange. This amendment will show whether the Government is prepared- by adopting thi? safeguard, to dispel the fear of farmers that primary production may be socialized.
