Senator YOUNG - Is the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry aware that many farmers on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, and no doubt in other areas, are in financial difficulties and at present are unable to obtain credit for the purchase of their superphosphate requirements for this season?
