(Question No. 3123)

DR EVERINGHAM asked the Minister representing the

Attorney-General, upon notice, on 24 November 1978.

Will the Government provide legal aid to the

farmers whose industry is threatened by the State of

Queensland's franchise agreement with the Queensland

Cement and Lime Co. if legal action under section 50 of

the Trade Practices Act is prolonged by the Company.

MR VINER - The Attorney-General has provided the

following answer to the honourable member's question:

I have not received■ any applications for

legal or financial assistance under section 170 of the

Trade Practices Act 1974 from farmers in Queensland in

respect of proceedings under section 50 of that Act. If

an application is received by me it will be considered

when all the necessary information is before me.
