Mr SPOONER (ROBERTSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for Supply and Development make a statement with respect to the citrus position, as it is affected by the requirements of citrus juices for the Army? Will the honorable gentleman explain the evident need for the promulgation of a freezing order, so that a quota system may be applied to thousands of growers? Will he indicate whether or not his department is prepared to release as quickly as possible sufficient citrus fruits to meet the reasonable requirements of the public, having regard to the special situation caused this year by drought and Army needs?
