One of the largest manufacturers of dog bread and biscuits in New South Wales said yesterday that he 'was using almost 8i tons of wheatmeal every month.

Before restrictions were applied six weeks ago, he was using 10 tons of wheatmeal each, week.

The manufacturer added that he supplied sheep- and cattle stations in New South Wales with dog. biscuits and bread for their sheep -dogs and. cattle dogs.

I offer no apology for this allocation. When the proposal was submitted to me "by the Director-General of Agriculture I approved, it, and I would do the same again in like circumstances. The charge brought by the honorable member for New England that I was sacrificing human beings for dogs is merely indicative of the level of his mentality.
