Senator BRENNAN (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - It must be remembered that the exporter is the claimant, although the final recipient is to be the grower. The exporter cannot" receive the bounty unless he can show that he has exported the number of cases of oranges on which the bounty is claimed. No injustice or, at any rate, inequity would be done to a grower if he could not produce proof that he was entitled to the payment of the bounty. What has been envisaged by Senator Badman might possibly occur in respect of very small consignments sold by a grower and subsequently included in a larger consignment for export, but if it cannot be demonstrated that the fruit has been exported it cannot be claimed that wrong has been done by the non-payment of the bounty. All that a person can expect is justice according to law.
