Mr ADERMANN (FISHER, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Primary Industry) - The Prime Minister recently announced that a committee of inquiry to investigate the marketing of wool would be set .up.

Mr Bryant - Why did not the Minister for Primary Industry make the announcement?

Mr ADERMANN - Because the Government considers this matter to be of such importance that it is only fitting that the head of the Government should make the announcement. The Prime Minister has said that a top-level committee will be appointed. Obviously, some members of the Parliament would not come into that category. However, I can assure the honorable member for Lalor that a top-level committee of inquiry will be appointed. The Government is still considering the personnel but I do not think the honorable member's fears have any foundation in fact.
