Senator WRIEDT (Tasmania) (Minister for Primary Industry) - I have no desire to prolong the debate. I thought it was understood from what I said earlier about revaluation claims that this matter was put through the Australian Apple and Pear Board or the State fruit board. The same will apply in this case. I would not expect, nor would the Government expect, that individual growers would do this. It will come through the submissions of the State fruit board if the growers apply. I am not able to be any more specific than I have been because I think it would be presumptuous of the Government to in any way commit itself to say that this will be done or that that will not be done. We would not do anything without consulting the industry first. The industry must be the body to guide us as to how the most effective use can be made of this money.
