Mr SHERRY (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. I ask: What was the basis of the representation made to the Federal Government by the Tasmanian State Government in regard to Commonwealth assistance for those fruit growers of my electorate who were severely hit by frost damage? Secondly, is it not a fact that the Commonwealth has given assistance to other primary industries in other States in similar circumstances? Thirdly, what was the reason for the Federal Government's refusal to help the Tasmanian grower?
