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

Were the Minister and his Department consulted in the two revaluation decisions announced by the Prime Minister; if not, why not?

Dr Patterson (DAWSON, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Northern Development) - The Minister for Primary Industry has provided the answer to the honourable member's question:

It is a matter of Government policy as to how decisions on various matters will be reached. At the time of the revaluation decisions, the implications for rural producers were fully taken into account and announcements were made as to the forms of adjustment assistance that would be available to those adversely affected by the decisions.
