Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) . - The range of the investigation of the Royal Commission on the Wheat Industry greatly exceeded the expectations of the Government. Complications arose in respect of the manufacture of flour and the examination of the affairs of bakers in New South Wales, who, as honorable senators representing that State are aware, are in a peculiar position. This investigation has gone on and on, and I am sure that, as a result of it, a vast amount of knowledge will be brought to the Government regarding the intricacies of the production of bread and flour. The commission prosecuted its investigation in every part of Aus- tralia where wheat is produced. Consequently, the provision made in the Estimates last year was not sufficient to meet the expenditure of the commission. I anticipate that the commission's final report will be furnished to the Government either this week or next week.
