Senator YOUNG - Following an answer given earlier today in relation to rock phosphate in Queensland, has the Minister for Agriculture made any inquiries? If not, will he make inquiries to give some indication of what the cost per tonne will be for this rock phosphate?

Senator WRIEDT - I am not aware the Australian Government has the power to make any such determination. I assume that the only body which would be competent to make a judgment on the price would be the Prices Justification Tribunal. I assume also that once the company is in a position to market the product, it will be required to take the matter to that Tribunal.
