Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Primary Industry) - The Australian Wheat Board has just approved of' extra payments for both No. 18 and No. I8A pools, in the case of bagged wheat at 7!d. a bushel, and in the case of bulk wheat at 4id. a bushel. This brings the payment for No. IS pool to something like 12s. 3id. a bushel for bagged wheat, and about £3,500,000 will be paid to the growers in the latest advances in respect of both pools. I think the House would like to know that these payments will bring the total amount paid to growers in respect of these two pools to nearly £91,000,000.
