Mr BANDIDT (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) - My question is addressed to the Minister for Primary Industry. Do the United States of America and the United Kingdom pay their butter producers, through price support, 5s. Australian or more per lb. and grant them substantial indirect support in addition, for example, by way of grants for improvements and for hillside farms in the case of the United Kingdom? Do any Western European countries pay their butter producers, through price support, 6s. Australian per lb. or more for their butter? How much, Australian, per lb. does the Minister estimate Australian butter producers will finally receive for this financial year?
