Mr MAHONY (Dalley) .- I move -

That the following new clause be added: - "This Act shall not become operative unless and until the said agreement and proposal to give the Governor-General power to prohibit the exportation from the Commonwealth of the exportable surplus of butter has been referred to the butter producers for their expression of opinion thereon."

I want to say briefly that my impression is that the man who actually works on the dairy farm has not been consulted in this matter. Other people have manipulated things in such a way that they have acted as delegates and decided the terms of the agreement In order to make it absolutely certain that the primary producers themselves approve of the agreement and the Bill it is necessary that such a clause as I have moved should be inserted.

Suggest corrections
