Senator McMANUS (VICTORIA) - I ask a question of the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. Has the Government considered any provision for the future employment of farmers and their families who, under Government plans for reorganisation of primary industry, may be removed from the land? Will the Government set up an organisation to consider the implications of this problem, including vocational training, housing and the establishment of decentralised industries to provide employment in country towns? Does the Government realise that now is the time to plan to assist those who may be dispossessed in the near future?
