Senator MILLINER (Queensland) - I rise particularly because of the interjection of Senator Webster. He should have heard the Minister state that the averment provision is used most infrequently. If it is used infrequently, I suggest that it is for the Minister to tell us when it is used and not for us to have to tell the Government. I think that is a fair proposition. I do not know that we should be taxed with the task of informing the Government of when the provision is used against farmers. In reverse, as the Minister has said that it is used most infrequently, I suggest that it is his responsibility to allay Senator Webster's fears and to answer his question.
