Mr SCULLY (GWYDIR, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Commerce) - I have discussed this matter tentatively with the chairman of the Central Wool Committee, Mr. Justice Owen. There will be further discussion of it, and the Central Wool Committee will ensure that safeguards shall be provided in respect of those persons who, through no fault of their own, but in order to conform to the man-power regulations in regard to zoning, have been obliged to advance the dates of their shearing operations. At the request of the honorable member, I shall ask the committee to take this, matter up immediately with the State wool committees, in order to avoid injustice to any person who has had to conform to national security regulations in respect of dates of shearing, by ensuring that they will not be deprived of the increased price for their wool.
