Mr ADERMANN (Fisher) (Minister for Primary Industry) . - in reply - I appreciate the support of members of the Opposition for these bills because they, like the Government, recognize the need for promotional activities more and more in any industry, and in particular in this industry. When I was introducing these bills, I expressed the appreciation of the Government at the attitude of the growers themselves in coming to it and recommending a levy so that they might contribute to a fund in order that promotional activities might be engaged in. The Government was happy to accede to their suggestion and introduced these three measures which are directly associated with the collection of the levy and its expenditure.

The fourth measure deals with the appointment of a growers' representative to the canning board. 1 shall reply to the remarks of the honorable member for Bendigo (Mr. Clarey) on union representation at the committee stage. At this juncture, I content myself by saying that I am very happy to have the support of the whole House for these measures.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time and passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.
