Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) (Leader of the Australian Country Party in the Senate) - I do not want to join issue with the Minister for Primary Industry (Senator Wriedt). I agree in principle with what he said. I still think that there were . different figures. I will have to check that. However I am not saying that the Minister is wrong. There was opposition within the industry to the proposition put up by the Minister. He will recall that at the time of this debate he said that there was no opposition within the industry. I want to make clear that there was opposition within the industry. I think now that we have all agreed that this Bill will be of benefit to the industry. We have come to common ground and I am glad to see it.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
