Senator MCKELLAR (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) - The honorable senator advised me earlier that he intended to ask these questions. I had an opportunity to discuss them with the Minister for Primary Industry who has supplied the following information: The advice of the Attorney-General's Department has been obtained on the question of the power of the Australian Wool Board publicly to explain the proposals for a reserve price scheme for wool. In the course of its examination of the matter, the Attorney-General's Department considered Mr. Aickin's opinion. Having regard to the opinion obtained from the Attorney-General's Department, the Minister for Primary Industry is satisfied that the broadcasts made by the Wool Board late last year were within the Board's authority. In view of that opinion, the question of giving instructions to the Wool Board does not arise.
