Mr BEAZLEY (FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Officers of the Department of Commerce and Agriculture have informed me that 754,000 tons of flour was placed at the disposal of Great Britain, compared with an annual export of 137,000 tons pre-war, and that 267,000 tons of wheat and flour was sent to India in the first five months of this year. Will the Minister take steps to make periodic statements on the subject of food exports in view of the fact that the Australian effort is commended abroad and belittled at home?
