Question No. 79

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

(1) Did the Government undertake during the 1983 election campaign to promote and support skills training in agriculture.

(2) If so, what action is proposed.

(3) Will the Government implement, with the States, young farmer establishment schemes similar to that which is currently being operated by the Queensland Government.

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

The honourable member has sought information on the implementation of Labor's election promises.

The matter he has identified 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 or will be considered in an orderly fashion and that a decision will be announced at the appropriate time.
