Senator DUNCAN-HUGHES (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - This bill will cover many more industries than were helped under the old marketing schemes. Marketing is a very wide term.

Senator BRENNAN - I ' think that the most one can say is that it may cover a wider field. In the sixteen years when we were, de facto, in the position that we will be in if .this alteration is agreed to. marketing schemes were limited to certain primary industries, and, from the nature of the case, I think they are bound to be limited to those primary industries in which we produce more than we consume.

Senator Foll - An increasing number of industries will be brought under the marketing schemes as the years go on.

Senator BRENNAN - That may be. The action of this Parliament in regard to those schemes was taken at the request of the Parliaments of the States. The schemes have worked well, and we hope that they will continue to do so. In the belief that the proposal in this bill will achieve its object, I commend the second reading of the measure to honorable senators.

Debate (on motion by Senator Collings) adjourned.
