Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) - I know I am tedious and that I irritate the Minister, but I do it as briefly as possible and in my brevity it may be that I am a bit more definite than he would wish. I opened the discussion at the commencement of the Committee stage to ask what industries were available for financial assistance. I had in mind this provision. I did not refer to it by number but I referred to its compulsive provisions. I asked the Minister whether, in relation to the apple export industry in Tasmania, if we are dissatisfied- I hope we will not be- with the final decision of the Government as to revaluation compensation, we could go to the Commission. I got an affirmative answer. It seems as though, in the language which we are considering now, the industry would be precluded from going to the Commission except for assistance in accordance with any law that may be in force before 1 July. I am sorry not to understand the Minister, but I do not want to be left in a false position with regard to that matter.
