Mr RANKIN (Bendigo) ." - I support the proposal of the honorable .member for Corangamite (Mr. McDonald) that the Australian Primary

Producers Union should specifically be given the right to nominate persons for appointment to the Australian Meat Board. It has a strong membership throughout Victoria, which produces about 60 per cent, of the lambs exported. The membership of the union is growing rapidly. In the last twelve months it has increased threefold. It is entitled to consideration in view of the fact that it represents a large section of the lamb producers of Australia. I ask the Minister to accept the suggestion of the honorable member for Corangamite and also that he be sufficiently courteous to meet a deputation from the union on this matter.
