Mr ABBOTT - In view of the statement made last Friday by the Minister for 'Commerce to the effect that 153,000,000 bushels of wheat were received into the pool, and that the Government's guaranteed price of 3s. lOd. a bushel f.o.b. was based on a crop of 140,000,000 bushels, I ask the Minister whether he will recommend to Cabinet that the guaranteed price be paid on 140,000,000 bushels, and that the amount actually received for the balance of 13,000,000 bushels be distributed to the growers as a final payment?

Mr SCULLY - I shall give consideration to the honorable gentleman's question.
