Senator WEDGWOOD (VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry: Is it true that last week China completed the purchase of 1,200,000 tons of wheat from Australia and that the latest Soviet purchase from Australia - also arranged last week - was 800,000 tons? In view of these large sales of wheat to China and Russia, is there not a danger that Australia may be relying too heavily on these Communist countries for a market for Australian wheat?
