Mr ARMSTRONG (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Acting Minister for Primary Industry. In view of the fact that in the 1962-63 season, when wheat for home consumption was reduced in price by 1 s. 5d. per bushel, the price of bread was reduced by one halfpenny per 2 lb. loaf, can the present suggested increase of 2d. per loaf in the price of bread be justified when the present increase in the price of wheat represents only one-fifth of a cent per 2 lb. loaf?
