Senator JAMES McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I am speaking of wheat, dried fruits and dairy produce.

Senator Duncan-Hughes - I obtained a better price for my dried fruits before the control system was introduced.

Senator JAMES McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Perhaps the honorable senator was growing fruit in a favorable district. I recall the time when wheat was sold at1s.7d. a bushel, mallee roots at 3s.6d. aton, butter at 3d. per lb., eggs at 3d. a dozen and wool at 5d. per lb. The best fat lambs would not bring more than 3s.6d. each. Because I do not wish such prices to prevail again, I intend to support the bill.

Debate (on motion by Senator Brown) adjourned.
