Senator TROETH (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) (6:05 PM) —I have the words of those drafting instructions in front of me. You have quoted what may well be one of, let us say, 1,000 reasonably complex leasing arrangements, all of which will vary in size in the way they have been developed. It is proposed that revenue sharing be determined by converting the leasing arrangements which existed at 6.30 p.m. on 28 September 1999 into a revenue share of income from milk deliveries. And it is proposed that the Dairy Adjustment Authority be given some discretion to determine a revenue sharing arrangement in cases where the lease arrangement is highly complex or in cases where it does not just relate to the carrying on of a farm enterprise. As I said, the example you gave is one of what may well be 1,000 different arrangements. Obviously, how that will be determined is up to the Dairy Adjustment Authority.
