Senator MAUNSELL - I ask the Minister for Agriculture: What is the latest position in respect of this season's wool sales? Is the Minister in a position to feil the Senate what will be the role of the Australian Wool Corporation?

Senator WRIEDT (TASMANIA) -1 have had discussions with the General Manager and the Chairman of the Australian Wool Corporation in respect of the quite uncertain position of the wool market at present. As the honourable senator will know, the Joint Wool Selling Organisation has deferred any further sales until 2 September. I am not in a position to say specifically what the strategy will be for this season. The Corporation has put certain proposals before me. Until such time as I can discuss this matter at a Government level, I will not be able to state specifically the Government's attitude. But I certainly will continue to work in liaison with the Corporation to ensure that a satisfactory program is worked out for the forthcoming season.
