Tuesday, 4 May 1971


President, Senator Poyserasked me a question a short while ago and I told him that I would seek further information about the matter. I now have the information and would like to take the opportunity to give it to him. I said that all States had accepted the maginal dairy farms reconstruction scheme. The scheme was formally accepted by Western Australia on 20th July last year; by Queensland on 14th September 1970 and is in full operation. It was formally accepted in Tasmania on 4th December 1970 and validating legislation bad passed the State parliament. Validating legislation was before the South Australian Parliament recently. Victoria formally accepted on 19th March 1971. Validating State legislation is not required but the scheme is operative. In New South Wales as at 19th March, an agreement was to be drawn up and sent back to the New South Wales Premier for signature in that week. That is the stage reached. The estimate of financial requirements to 30th June 1971 is $3.25m for Queensland and $600,000 for Western Australia.
