Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Primary Industry) - I think the honorable member, in common with most other honorable members, will be aware that the Government keeps under constant review all the problems of the butter industry. I am very glad to be able to tell the honorable member that the Government will underwrite the return on total production of butter and cheese for the 1958-59 season, which will enable the average factory to pay to producers 40d. per lb. commercial butter basis when the equalization pool for the year is finalized. I am glad the honorable member has given me the opportunity to present this information to the House, as it will be very useful when the debate on the research and sales promotion scheme is continued.
