Mr J R Fraser - I ask the Minister for the Interior: Will he investigate the extent to which the New South Wales Egg Marketing Board has obtruded its activities and methods into the city of Canberra? Will he ascertain whether agents of this board have succeeded in arranging with nearly all stores and retailers discount contracts to take only New South Wales Egg Marketing Board eggs? Does this mean that poultry farmers in the Australian Capital Territory have been deprived of their local market and are now in a position in which they have either to sell to the board on the board's terms or to let their eggs rot in the sheds on their properties?
