Mr McEWEN - This question ls scarcely within my province, but I can say to the honorable member that when the Government makes a gift of food in circumstances such as this it would always seek to supply the kind of food desired by the country to be benefited. This would be the policy in this case, but as I know that Indonesia has been an important importer of flour, and therefore is accustomed to flour as an item of diet, I am sure that if rice were unavailable consideration would be given to the honorable member's suggestion.
