Mr ADERMANN (FISHER, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Primary Industry) - Dealing w h ;he portion of the honorable member's question relating to the Australian Agricultural Council and the action it should take. I want to make it quite clear that there is an understanding between the State Ministers and the Commonwealth that there will be no alteration of the quotas that were determined some years ago without the Minister representing a State that might be interested in making an alteration advising all other Ministers. No State is suggesting any alteration, so the quotas will remain. The honorable member asked whether the Commonwealth Government was aware of over production of margarine, lt is general public knowledge that there has been over production. Evidence of this was given in a recent court case, initialed by the previous New South Wales Government and continued by the present Government, which resulted in a conviction being recorded against the company concerned.
