Mr Malcolm Fraser asked the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry, upon notice:

As the brief press statements issued by the Minister have left the farming community with little understanding of what occurred at the meeting of the Agricultural Council, will the Minister now provide a full report of the meeting.

Dr Patterson - The Minister for Primary Industry has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

As I have had no queries from any sector of the farming community on the outcome of the Australian Agricultural Council meeting, I can only assume that statements issued by me following the Council meeting were sufficiently explanatory.

If the honourable member requires further information on any particular topic, I would be happy to provide it for him. As the honourable member knows, proceedings at Agricultural Council meetings are confidential.
