Question No. 65

Mr McVeigh asked the Minister for Primary Industry, upon notice, on 4 May 1983:

Does the Government's policy on wool promotion which states that Labor recognises the urgent need for changes to the way promotion is funded mean that the wool grower is going to be asked to make a greater contribution to promotion funding.

Mr Kerin —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The honourable member has sought information on Labor's attitude to existing Commonwealth expenditures.

The matter he has raised involves development and consultation within the Government and with other agencies and with relevant industries.

I can assure him that the matter raised is being considered in an orderly fashion and that a decision will be announced at the appropriate time.
