Mr ADERMANN - As to whether the Government would consider taking the freight charges out of the second advance of 2s. instead of the first advance of 9s. a bushel, the honorable gentleman ought not to be too optimistic. The Government has formulated its policy on this point, and takes the view that, since we have preserved the advance to the growers at lis. a bushel overall, the growers may well be expected to make the proposed contribution in the interests of relieving existing inflationary pressures. That is more particularly so seeing that we have given favorable consideration to the export primary industries in every instance, when making policy decisions, in that we have not penalized them with credit restrictions or increased interest rates.
