Senator POYSER (VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. Can he advise the Senate as to what is the wheat production quota for the year 1972-73? Can he indicate whether it is anticipated that this quota will be reached by that season's production? If it will not be reached, what will be the position of those growers who now have over-quota wheat in storage? Will the over-quota wheat be used to make up any leeway in the production by which the 1972-73 crop falls short of the quota?

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - The honourable senator's question is a fairly allembracing one because it involves the policies of the State governments. I think the best way for me to answer the honourable senator's question is to obtain details from the Minister for Primary Industry, who will give him the information he seeks concerning that portfolio and perhaps some information on the position as it affects the States.
