Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) .- I should like to know if the Leader of the Senate (Senator Daly) is in a position to state when the Government will give consideration to the motion passed last evening with regard to the position of our wheat-growers. ' I need hardly remind the Minister that the eyes of thousands of harassed primary producers are on the Government at the present time, that, they are waiting anxiously to hear what action the Ministry intends to take. We are all hoping that it will give immediate and sympathetic consideration to the terms of the motion as well as to the resolution passed by the conference of representatives from the wheat-growing States in Canberra on Thursday.

There is another matter. As a senator from one of the more distant States, I should like to know how long the business before the Senate is likely to occupy this chamber when it re-assembles on Tuesday week. It takes me five days to travel from my home in Western Australia to Canberra and five days to return. As - this is a part of my duty as a representative of the people I have no complaint on that score, but I should like to know if it will be possible to get through the business in reasonable time when next the Senate assembles.
