Mr Kirwan asked the Minister for Primary Industry, upon notice:

(1)   Has Australia been supplying live wethers to Kuwait; if so, for how long.

(2)   From which States have these wethers bees sent.

(3)   How many wethers have been sent from each Stale during each year for which figures are available.

(4)   What firm or State has the contract to supply this market at the present time.

Mr Anthony - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   Yes. A considerable number of wethers tor slaughter has been supplied to Kuwait since 1960.

(2)   Western Australia and South Australia.

(3)   Details of total shipments from both States compiled from returns received by my Department are set out below:


As only one exporter is involved in shipments from South Australia I am not prepared to reveal separate details of those shipments.

(4)   It would be inappropriate to reveal the operations of individual firms.
