Mr McMAHON - The price paid to the producers for wheat delivered to the Australian Wheat Board is determined under the various State wheat industry stabilization acts. Therefore, the price is determined under a State act and not under Commonwealth legislation. The return i> decided on an f.o.r. basis at ports. H country millers obtain their wheat from a country wheat silo, they get wheat at the normal price less freight from the silo to the port. Similarly, if city millers obtain wheat through the Australian Wheat Board they pay the cost of sending the wheat from the. country silo to the port. I believe it is correct to say that if the country millers can obtain wheat at country silos, they gel the benefit of not having to pay the freight from the country silo to the port of shipment.
