Mr PATERSON (GIPPSLAND, VICTORIA) - Is the Minister forCommerce aware that sales of superphosphate during the last ten weeks have had to be made without the manufacturer knowing how much he should charge, or the buyer knowing how much be should pay, this being brought about because the long-expected announcement regarding the fixing of prices has not yet been made? Can the Minister say whether the subsidy payable on each ton of superphosphate will be increased in inverse proportion to the decreased volume of fertilizer brought about by rationing?
