Mr HUNT (GWYDIR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Primary Industry whether he is aware of the recent decline in wool prices in Australia, the average price obtained at the Sydney sales being a little over 31c with the lowest clearance for many years? Is he also aware that some weeks have now passed since the Australian Wool Industry Conference recommended the establishment of a single wool selling authority to handle, market and dispose of the Australian wool clip? What progress is being made by the Australian Wool Board's Advisory Committee in its survey of the wool price problem, and when does the Minister expect a report from the Committee? Does the Government view the wool growers problem with concern, and does the Government appreciate the need for the earliest possible establishment of a single wool selling authority in Australia?
