nominated by the West Australian Wheat Board and Mr. Brimblecombe

Mr, Adermann paid a tribute to the outgoing Board,, which

he said had experienced a troubled wheat marketing period in the last

three years owing to the existence of high surpluses of wheat in t h e '

major wheat exporting countries. The Board had pursued an aggressive

selling policy and had amply demonstrated the value of orderly

marketing in difficult circumstances. , .

Mr. Adermann concluded - "Undoubtedly there are still

very serious wheat marketing problems to be contended with.·

However the Government will do all it can in its sphere to provide

outlets for Australian wheat and I am confident the V/heat Board will

play its part well in the selling arena." .·
