Mr TURNBULL (Mallee) .- I am sure that you will allow me, Mr. Chairman, to correct a mistaken impression that may have been created by the honorable member for Bendigo (Mr. Clarey). He said that I disagreed with the honorable member for Lalor (Mr. Pollard) and suggested that the small wool-grower could not produce superfine quality wool. Of course, I did not say that. Having had many years' experience with sheep, I know that the small grower can produce superfine wool.

What I said was that if land were cut up into small areas which were subjected to intensive cultivation, and if four sheep were then run to the acre, the superfine quality of wool could not be retained without the aid of special food and culture.

Mr Pollard - That is nonsense.

Mr TURNBULL - At the moment, 1 am answering what the honorable member for Bendigo said.
