Senator BRENNAN (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - I think that the honorable senator has rather trenched upon a matter which is more relevant to a bill which will come before us later. The money has been collected as part of an export levy on butter, and has been devoted to certain specified purposes for the benefit of the industry. Should the Australian Dairy Council cease to exist, the money which it has in hand will be voted to the same purpose as previously.

Senator JAMES McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I cannot see why the Dairy Export Control Board, which has more money than it needs, will require the £9,000 set down in the item.

Senator BRENNAN - The money collected will be paid to the Australian Dairy Council, which will be paid only those moneys which are collected on its behalf. It is estimated that the collections will amount to £9;Q00 this year.
