Senator BADMAN (South Australia) . - The method of denning export oranges is somewhat haphazard. Dealers in citrus fruits will, in most instances, dispose of them in both the local and the export markets. Should a dealer purchase 50 cases of oranges from a grower and dispose of half of them locally and export the remainder, what is to prevent him from telling the grower that only twenty cases have been exported? And how would the grower be able to prove that more than twenty cases of his oranges were exported?

Senator Brennan - There may be difficulties, but the provisions of the bill, embody the best means that can be devised to protect the interests of the growers.
