Senator HENTY - The disposal of the Australian wheat crop is in the very good hands of the Australian Wheat Board which acts as an independent body. I know of no big surplus of wheat in Australia last season and I have not been informed whether there is a surplus from the current crop. The Australian Wheat Board sells Australian wheat in competition throughout the world and has been very successful over the years in disposing of the Australian wheat crop. I understand that the crop last year was a record. I do not think the honorable senator need worry while our wheat is in the hands of an independent authority which is prepared to meet competition and sell our wheat to the best advantage of Australia and the wheat growers. As to the other matters mentioned by the honorable senator in his question, if he will put them on the notice paper I will ask the Minister to supply the information.
