Senator MAUNSELL (Queensland) - The Opposition will support Senator Hall in this amendment. We do not see the necessity for the Corporation to get involved in the processing of wool. I know that there are difficulties in certain areas, and as far as the United States market in the future is concerned it may be that we will have to process our wool to a certain stage in order to enter that market to any great extent. Wool processing plants in the United States are going out of production. But that processing can still be done under this Bill by the ordinary private enterprise processors within Australia. That is why we will support Senator Hall in this amendment.

Question put:

That the words proposed to be left out (Senator Steele Hall's amendment) be left out.
