Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister representing the Treasurer. Has the Commonwealth Government been approached by the State Premiers for drought relief? Will the

Minister agree that it is time for some constructive policy to be formulated, with a view to the elimination of the periodical economic battering which primary producers take from recurring hazards? Will the Government take action to make available at low interest rates long term loans for the purposes of irrigation and fodder conservation schemes, as advocated by producer and rural political organisations?
