Mr RANKIN (BENDIGO, VICTORIA) - The Minister for Commerce has stated that the Government proposes to allow wheat-growers to elect their own representatives to the Australian Wheat Board. Will the honorable gentleman indicate when the elections are to take place?

Mr SCULLY - I hope to review early in the new year the whole position in regard to the reconstruction of the Australian Wheat Board. The recent appointments are only temporary, the object being to give to the growers adequate representation for the control of this season's crop. I shall bear in mind the representations of the honorable member, and hope to have the board reconstructed very shortly.
