Dr. PATTERSON__I address a question to the Minister for Primary Industry. In view of the fact that the mono-culture sugar industry is now more dependent than ever before on overseas prices, particularly free market prices, and in view also of the fact that the Queensland Cane Growers Council has completely endorsed the need for a cane stabilisation scheme in Australia, will the Minister inform the House whether he agrees with the decision of the Council, and will he continue to use his good judgment - always in consultation with the industry, of course - to see what steps can be taken to give stability of income to this important industry with the minimum of delay?
