Mr FALKINDER (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) - As it has been decided to introduce an acquisition scheme in respect of fruit crops in Tasmania, I ask the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture whether, when that proposal is placed before fruit-growers in that State, an opportunity will be given to them to decide by ballot whether their fruit should he marketed by a Commonwealth or State instrumentality? Further, when an agreement is made for the sale of apples and pears to the United Kingdom will an export quota be allotted to Western Australia and Tasmania as was done in connexion with the last acquisition scheme, or will it be allotted in respect of the Commonwealth as a whole?
