Mr TURNBULL (WIMMERA, VICTORIA) - At Newmarket saleyards on Tuesday last an additional 7,098 lambs and 11,705 fat sheep were offered by comparison with the offerings on the previous Tuesday, fat lambs making the record price for the year of 54s.10d., and wethers selling to 45s.

Many sheep men are now anxious to market as soon as restrictions are removed. As the added supply that would be available on the removal of the restrictions would relieve the Melbourne meat shortage, and most likely ease values atthe market, does not the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture consider that the time to lift the acquisition or der has arrived?
