Mr McEWEN - The planned demonstration outside Parliament yesterday which was, 1 think, organised centrally by the honourable member for Riverina and others associated with him, was to those who observed it, as I did, and to those who read the reports in the newspaper, a complete frost. It was a frost, of course, because of the Country Party - not because the Country Party took any steps to persuade people not to come but because the policies on which the Country Party, in conjunction with our colleagues of the Liberal Party, has operated in respect of wool, wheat, dairying, the search for markets overseas and concessions and assistance to primary producers obviously produced such a consciousness in the minds of primary producers that their wellbeing was safe in the hands of the Country Party and our Liberal colleagues that they stayed away in their thousands.
