Mr LESLIE (MOORE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - In view of the fact that the outlook for the wheat industry al present indicates that the price for export wheat in the coming years will be substantially above the sacrificial homeconsumption price of the wheat stabilization scheme, thus making it very unlikely that the wheat-growers will require to call on the stabilization fund, and as almost the whole of the wheat available for export from last harvest and possibly most of the wheat for export from the coming harvest will be from Western Australia, will the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture consider waiving the imposition of the export tax on wheat so far as it applies to the export wheat from the harvest that is just completed and from the coming harvest?
