Mr ADERMANN (FISHER, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Primary Industry) - I am very pleased to say that the additional sales of wheat made by the Australian Wheat Board to mainland China are sales to what is really a new market, and they are over and above sales that have been made in our traditional markets. Similar sales have been made this year to Italy for seasonal reasons, and this also is not a normal market of ours. These sales will, indeed, help to reduce the surplus which otherwise would have been a real problem to the wheat industry; they are not in any way hindering sales in our traditional markets.
