Mr BUCHANAN (MCMILLAN, VICTORIA) - My question to the Acting Minister for Primary Industry refers to the allegation that the calculation of costs in the "No" case pamphlet for the wool prices referendum is mathematically inaccurate. As the purpose of the allegation was to mislead growers, as it received wide publicity, as the calculation has been checked and not only found to be correct but also certified by accountants to be correct, and as indeed the calculation has been admitted to be correct by the people who originated the allegation, will the Minister examine what steps can be taken to assure growers that the mathematics revealing the high costs involved are correct?
