Mr McVEIGH (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - I address a question to the Minister for Overseas Trade. Is he aware of recent falling prices for wheat in world markets? Can he advise what he and his Department are doing to prevent the recurrence of a long period of low prices for wheat with consequent disruption to the wheat industry? Does the recent sale by the grower controlled Australian Wheat Board to the People 's Republic of China indicate that the Wheat Board is controlled by growers who are not only world class producers but also top class businessmen?
