Mr KILLEN (MORETON, QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Acting Prime Minister. Is it correct that proposals have been made to the Australian Wheat Board that it should sell a quota of wheat to Communist China on a credit basis? Has the Wheat Board sought any guidance from the Government on whether it should engage in export sales on credit either to China or to any other buyer? Is the Government aware of current speculation that wheat sold to China on credit by Australia may be re-exported to third-party buyers to develop credits to enable Communist China to further its programme of ideological expansion in southeast Asia?
