Senator WRIEDT - The only comment I can make about this matter is that I had some discussions recently with the Australian Tractor and Farm Machinery Association which drew this matter to my attention. I am not conversant with the details of the matter and I was not conversant with them at the time I discussed it with the Association. It appeared that there was considerable need for greater safety measures to be adopted as I understand that there has been as many as 100 deaths in the last 12 months from accidents on farms. What I have agreed to do is to refer the matter to the Australian Agricultural

Council at its next meeting on 2 November for further consideration.
