Mr ARMSTRONG (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Trade and Industry. Has the attention of the Minister been drawn to a recent Press report which quoted him as stating in an address to the annual conference of the National Farmers Union that tariffs had added - I speak from memory - 8.5% to growers' costs but that the Government was returning to the industry a large proportion of this in the way of grants for research, etc.? Is this Press report correct? Will the Minister give a detailed explanation of the subject mentioned to the House?
