Mr MORRISON (St George) - I shall resume my personal explanation. The allegation is that I was badly misinformed on the price of wheat sold to Communist China. The Minister has not given any evidence to refute my statement.

A further allegation is that the wheat sales were for humanitarian reasons.I had argued previously that they were to extricate the Government from its own scandalous mismanagement of the wheat industry. I adhere to that point and it is substantiated, Mr Speaker, by the observations of the Minister who said that he was approached on this humanitarian question by the Minister for Trade and Industry (Mr McEwen).
