Mr SHERRY (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) - Has the Prime Minister received a communication from the Premier of Tasmania asking the Common wealth Government to establish a single national fruit marketing authority? If the Commonwealth is not prepared to establish such an authority will it give financial support so that such a scheme can be established by the Tasmanian Government? Finally, when does the Prime Minister expect to be in a position to indicate what the Commonwealth's decision is likely to be?

Mr McMAHON - To the best of my recollection, I have not received such a letter from the Premier of Tasmania. Nonetheless, as soon as I go back to my office I will make inquiries and go through the letters on my table and I will then let the honourable gentleman know whether I have received it.

Mr Sinclair - You have it.

Mr McMAHON - A letter has been received and it has been referred direct to the Minister for Primary Industry who will be reporting to me about it.
