Senator BADMAN (South Australia) . - I direct the attention of the Assistant Minister (Senator Brennan) to clause' 6, sub-clause 1, which reads -

The bounty shall, subject to this section, be payable to the exporter of the oranges.

That is the first stage. The intention of the Government is to pay the bounty to the growers who have suffered a loss owing to low prices obtained overseas. The second stage is covered by sub-clause 2, which reads -

The exporter of the oranges shall pay to the grower of the oranges the amount of the bounty received by him in respect of the oranges . . .

Is there not an opportunity for an exporter to inform a grower that he had exported only 20 per cent, of his oranges when he has actually exported 50 per cent.? How is the grower to ascertain the actual quantity shipped by the exporter?
