Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) ('Minister for Air) - 1 think that what Senator Douglas McClelland has said about clause 4 (10.) is right.

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - That is what is the concern of the producers.

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - Although the legislation does not spell out what the honourable senator is trying to say, I give the honourable senator my assurance now that, should an industry member die, resign or be removed from the Board, he will be replaced with an industry member from the State represented by the former member. Senator Little referred to the case of a producer member with fewer than 200 hives ceasing to be a producer member of the Board. I believe that what Senator Douglas McClelland said regarding clause 4 (10.) is right. If he will accept my assurance on the other matter. I will see thai he receives that assurance in writing later.
