Mr SCULLY - I read with gratification the item to which the honorable member refers. The news gives me great satisfaction, because wheat is so urgently required in many countries where the people are on the verge of starvation. The possibility of developing the. Eastern markets for Australian wheat " futures " has been receiving attention, and the British Ministry of Food has directed practically the whole of the exportable surplus of Australian wheat and flour to the East. That will prove an excellent advertisement for Australian wheat, and be of great value to this country in future.
