Mr ADERMANN (FISHER, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Primary Industry) - Some time last year - I cannot remember the month - the pineapple industry submitted a stabilization scheme to the Commonwealth Government through me and we sought further information on it. In the meantime, the industry decided to amend its plan and to submit a plan to the State Government. This was more to its liking. The State Government approved of the proposal. The plan was in turn submitted to the pineapple growers by referendum and was endorsed. However, after the referendum, it was ascertained that it was not possible legally to implement the plan by legislation. That is the present position. The industry and the State Minister no doubt will now have further conferences on the matter.
