Mr BREEN (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture whether approximately £7,000,000 has been allocated for research in connexion with the wool industry. If it has, will the honorable gentleman direct that, from the 1st July next, the present levy on wool shall be suspended until a fair proportion of the existing fund has been expended?

M'r. SCULLY.- The use to which the' £7,000,000 referred to shall be applied has not yet been definitely decided; the matter is one for future discussion by the Government and representatives of the wool industry. When a decision has been reached, the request of the honorable member will he considered.
