Mr. Sinclair said that total apple exports for the

season amounted to 4,601,957 bushels of which 3,424,871 bushels

were exported at risk. These "at risk" shipments represent an

increase of almost 0.235 million bushels on total "at risk" exports

for the 1974 season.

Total pear exports for the 1975 season amounted to 1,701,662

bushels of which 123,601 bushels were exported at risk. These

"at risk" shipments represent a decrease of more than 1 million

bushels on total "at risk" exports for the 1974 season.

Mr. Sinclair added that as a result of the special joint

additional financial arrangements entered into by the Australian

Government with the Governments of Tasmania, Western Australia

Queensland, South Australia and Victoria for the 1975 export

season, apple growers in those States will receive payments additional

to those under the stabilization plan with respect to most of the

varieties exported.
