Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) -I ask the Minister for Primary Industry whether he is able to say what is the extent of damage as a result of stem rust affecting large areas of wheat crops in New South Wales and also South Australia and as a result of frost, particularly in South Australia. Can the Minister say what is the estimated reduction in wheat yields as a result of these adverse effects? Will the reduction in yields in any way affect Australia's commitments on wheat sales?
