Mr TURNBULL (WIMMERA, VICTORIA) . - I welcome the opportunity to support the amendment. I would do anything to hamper the intention of the Govern.ment to bring into this scheme the wheat produced in the 1945-46 crop. That wheat having been acquired under wartime regulations, it cannot justly be included in the scheme. The wheatgrowers were led to believe that they would receive cash for the wheat that . they grew in that year. Many of them entered into financial commitments which must be taken into account, because they have to be met. Believing that the receipts from the 1945-46 crop would become available to them, they purchased different articles which they considered would assist them to continue production. If this legislation be carried, they will be left high and dry.
