Mr HAWKER - The department cannot make the bounty available on wheat stored in a co-operative grain shed. The bounty will be payable on that wheat when it is sold. The Crown Law officers advise that the bounty is payable on wheat only when it has passed out of the control of the grower - when it is sold or delivered to a wheat-buyer for sale. Therefore, the department cannot pay a bounty on wheat simply because it is delivered to a co-operative shed as distinct from a pool shed, the grower still having control of his wheat. When lie sells it, the bounty will become payable. The position of the wheatgrowers is at present under consideration by Cabinet.
