Senator CAVANAGH (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I desire to ask a question of the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. In the present crisis in primary industries will the Minister review the rentals paid by soldier settlers on land valuations at the time of settlement far in excess of present day valuations and, where justified, reduce rents by making provision for repayments over longer periods? Will the Minister state the position of soldier settlers who are being compelled under loan agreements to insure all plant and buildings on the allotment including fixtures such as water tanks which are not easily destroyed?
