Senator FRASER (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for External Territories) - The Government has appointed three additional wheatgrowers' representatives from Victoria and New South Wales to the Australian Wheat Board. I have called for a panel of three names from the Wheat-growers Union, which is not at present represented on the Australian Wheat Board, in order that the representation of growers on that body may be in conformity with the Government's policy.

Senator E B Johnston - From Western Australia?

SenatorFRASER. - Yes. When the panel of names has been submitted to the Minister for Commerce, a member of the Wheat-growers Union will be appointed to the board. With respect to boards generally, the Government has not yet had time to review appointments already made, or to reconstitute such boards in accordance with its policy that the growers shall have additional representation thereon.

The question of additional representation of wool-growers on the Central Wool Committee is under consideration.
