Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -Does the

Minister for Primary Industry recall that in his reply to Senator Prowse last Tuesday on the subject of the Minister's directive to the Australian Wheat Board the Minister said: . . the long established tradition of denying the Australian wheat grower markets to which he is entitled will not continue.

Is it not a fact that the Wheat Board has sold, at world market prices, all wheat entrusted to its care?


Senator WRIEDT (TASMANIA) (Minister for Primary Industry) - I do not quite understand the significance of the question. I take it that Senator Drack-Brockman is asking whether the Australian Wheat Board has sold at world prices wheat entrusted to it. I would think that the answer to the question is yes.
