Mr SCULLY - I anticipated a question on that matter and had the following reply prepared : -

The Dairying Industry Assistance Act of 1943, which provides for assistance to the dairying industry, defines " dairy produce " as " cows' milk, or any produce derived from cows' milk, which is to be processed at a factory into butter, cheese, dried milk not being skimmed milk powder, condensed milk or concentrated milk". The act was assented to on the 3rd July, 1943, and was designed to stimulate the production of those products, which were required in the prosecution of the war. By the Cream (Disposal and Use) Order, sales of sweet or table cream have been banned, except on medical grounds, since May, 1943. Nevertheless; in States where the price of sweet cream is related to the price of butter fat, the price of sweet cream has increased in proportion to the increase of the price of butter fat. I shall investigate further the points raised by the honorable member.
