Minister for Primary Industry recall that in his reply to Senator Prowse last Tuesday on the subject of the Minister's directive to the Australian Wheat Board the Minister said: . . the long established tradition of denying the Australian wheat grower markets to which he is entitled will not continue.

Is it not a fact that the Wheat Board has sold, at world market prices, all wheat entrusted to its care?

Senator WRIEDT (TASMANIA) (Minister for Primary Industry) - I do not quite understand the significance of the question. I take it that Senator Drack-Brockman is asking whether the Australian Wheat Board has sold at world prices wheat entrusted to it. I would think that the answer to the question is yes.
