Mr BRIMBLECOMBE (MARANOA, QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to the Treasurer. I refer to the announcement by Dr. Coombs, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, that £17,700,000 worth of the frozen deposits held by that bank will be released to the trading banks. Does this mean that special credit assistance will be available to primary producers, to enable them to increase their investments in their farms and so boost production?
