Senator POKE (TASMANIA) - I understand that the Minister for Primary Industry has had several discussions with organisations involved in the apple and pear industry about marketing arrangements for that industry. Can he indicate whether any firm conclusions have yet been reached that might be for the benefit of the growers?

Senator WRIEDT - All I can say in reply to that question is that there have been many discussions held with various interests in the apple and pear industry. I will be making a statement later today on the formation of the proposed Australian Apple and Pear Corporation which I think will spell out in some detail the matter to which the honourable senator has referred.
