Mr GORTON - Part of the question which was just addressed to me dealt of course with future policy. But part of it, according to my understanding, did not. I reply to the honourable member on the basis that if I am mistaken in what I say to him now - I do not believe I am - I shall certainly correct what I have to say. I am under the impression that the Government in fact has already in instances made wheat available through the Australian Wheat Board to drought stricken farmers on a year's terms at 4i% interest. We are making arrangements for that.

Mr Beaton - When is that to start? lt has not started yet.

Mr GORTON - I believe it has. 1 cannot tell the honourable member when it started. In answer to the specific question that the honourable member asked, I do remember the Government making these arrangements. That answers the part of the question which was not related to future policy.
