Senator WEBSTER (VICTORIA) - Is the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry aware of a report that the president of the Northern Victorian Fruitgrowers Association has estimated that prompt financial assistance amounting to $250,000 would help to alleviate the problems of pear growers in the Goulburn Valley of Victoria? Has the Minister information about whether there has been an application to the Commonwealth for assistance to growers in the Goulburn Valley area? Has the Victorian Government yet requested the Commonwealth to assist by providing supplementary finance so that some aid may be given to these growers who face immediate problems of hardship?
