Senator BRENNAN (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - The new board will have control of marketing, which includes control of the price. The old board possessed that power, but it would take a considerable time if I were to explain to the honorable senator how it was that the old board came to abandon its rights to fix prices.

Senator Duncan-Hughes - Are my facts substantially correct?

Senator BRENNAN - Yes. Without any authority whatever the board dropped the minimum price, and it did that, I am afraid, because of some difference with the Minister.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time and passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.
