Senator YOUNG -On 6 November I asked the Minister for Primary Industry whether it was correct that Dr Cairns had signed an agreement with the People 's Republic of China regarding proposed wheat sales and whether it was also correct that the Australian Wheat Board had signed a contract with the Chinese on the wheat sales themselves. Further, why was it that the Prime Minister himself signed another agreement with the Chinese regarding wheat sales? If so, was this correct?

Senator WRIEDT -As I understand the question, it is that Senator Young is reminding me that he asked me those questions some time earlier.

Senator Young - I have not had an answer from you.

Senator WRIEDT -I am sorry. If the honourable senator has not obtained an answer I will expedite it.
