Senator WEBSTER - My question is addressed fo the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. Will he request the Minister for Primary Industry to make n statement about the situation of growers of pears and other fresh fruit in the Goulburn Valley area of Victoria? Does the Minister believe it to be a fact that many tons of fresh pears in that area will rot if they are not handled? Why did not the Commonwealth Government consider having the pears canned and given to needy people in other countries?
