Senator WRIGHT (TASMANIA) -I direct a question to the Minister for Primary Industry. Is it a fact that in the distribution of revaluation compensation to Tasmanian apple growers the Department of Primary Industry relied upon lists of exporters for the 1971 and 1972 seasons? Was any check made with those who exported in the year in which revaluation had its impact- 1973? In how many cases have cheques been sent to people who did not export any apples in 1973?

Senator WRIEDT -The matters raised by the honourable senator were considered by my Department. I cannot inform him of the precise details. I will obtain a detailed answer for the honourable senator. I feel he will be assured by that answer that every consideration was given to all fruit growers who were affected by the revaluation.
