Dame ENID LYONS (Darwin) . - I support the amendment. The Minister appears to be obsessed with the importance of a word. The organizations named in the bill are the Graziers Federal Council of Australia and the Australian Wool and Meat Producers Federation. Evidently, the words "Federal" and " Federation " are the qualification for inclusion in -the bill. The Australian Primary Producers Union has membership in four States which surely gives* it status as a federal organization. 1 particularly favour its inclusion in this clause because its represents in a very particular way the. small producer. Repeatedly, legislation which is introduced by this Government favours the large producer, the big business man, and large organizations. In Tasmania it is not such a strong organization as it is in other States, but still it represents a large section of producers. Therefore, it should be incorporated- in this provision.
