Mr MCMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Primary Industry) - The department has already drawn up a time-table, for a new five-year wheat industry stabilization plan and has asked the Australian Wheat Growers Federation whether it is agreeable to commence discussions with the departmental officials. However, the federation has informed us that it has before it for consideration a report on the costing of wheat by Mr. Crawford, the Secretary of the Department of Commerce and Agriculture, as it was formerly, and it wants to give the fullest and most careful consideration to his report before it makes its formal representations to the Government. As soon as those representations are made, I shall have pleasure in advising the honorable member.
