Mr RODGERS (WANNON, VICTORIA) .- Th The chief principle of this measure is that the growers of our dried fruits shall, in the main, control, through State boards and a central board, the marketing of their product. If the Minister has power to make regulations without consulting the local boards the industry will be open to a certain amount of undesirable governmental interference. If the amendment of the honorable member for Swan is agreed to, it will not be obligatory upon the Minister to gazette every regulation that is recommended. He will still have to bear the responsibility for recommending the gazettal of only uniform regulations.
