Mr ADERMANN (FISHER, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Primary Industry) - I happened to see this " Four Corners " programme when it was shown again on Sunday afternoon last and I noted the representations made during the programme by the representative of the company mentioned. Quotas applicable to the manufacture of margarine have been imposed by the six State Governments. When the Australian Labour Party was in office in New South Wales, the State Government initiated court action against this company for overproducing and the court later ruled that the company had infringed the relevant State act. I do not know whether any further action is to be taken. I note that the honorable member's attitude to margarine and its digestibility is the same as mine.
