Mr LUCHETTI (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Primary Industry. ls he in a position to say whether an immediate advance of 20c a bushel will be made to wheat growers whose crop was delivered to Vo. 28 Wheat Pool? If he is not yet able to give this information, will he take prompt action to ensure that a further advance is made without delay? I ask this question because of the desperate financial difficulties being experienced by many growers as a result of the disastrous drought. Finally. I ask the Minister to remind his Cabinet colleagues that such a payment is not a gift but only an advance of payment for wheat produced and delivered to the Australian Wheat Board.
