Mr Kevin Cairns (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - My question, which is directed to the Minister for Trade and Industry, relates to claims that the domestic price of meat may rise now that rain has fallen in parts of Queensland. As it was claimed earlier that the rise in the price of meat was in fact due to the effects of drought, can the Minister explain these apparently contradictory aspects of the effects of drought on domestic and export meat prices? If the present assessment is correct, for how long does he expect prices to rise? What kind of circumstances would eventually reduce them?
