Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) - It will save time if I follow up the explanation given by the Minister for Primary Industry (Senator Wriedt) by asking whether an application on the part of a primary industry in drought or seasonal circumstances is within the compulsive provisions of this Bill and whether the Bill- I know that this is contained in a later provision- having regard to the description of assistance in this clause, will be the real determinant of such assistance. I want to know whether requests for assistance for an industry resulting from drought, fire, flood or other disasters that from time to time occur will be required to go to this Commission for recommendation or whether the Government will be able to deal with such requests without reference to the Commission.
