Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - I will acknowledge that the situation to which the honourable senator has referred is drastic, but I will not acknowledge that nothing is being done by the State or Commonwealth governments. Perhaps things are not happening as fast as the growers would want them to happen, but consideration has to be given to the matter by the State Government. A case has to be built up by the State Government for presentation to the Commonwealth Government if a successful conclusion is to be reached.1 f think it was last week that I pointed- out' to the Sena.te that the co-operative dr the manufacturers already hold in storage something like li million to 2 million cases of canned pears.

Because of the honourable senator's concern I will refer his question to the Minister for Primary Industry for his consideration.
