§ 139. Sir H. Williams
asked the Minister of Food the total value of the food he has received from the Queensland farm of the British Food Corporation.
§ Mr. Webb
The value of the sorghum so far received from the Queensland British Food Corporation is about£290,000 f.o.b. It is estimated that a further quantity worth about£222,000 f.o.b. remains to be shipped from the 1950 crop. Cattle and pigs worth about£250,000 (Australian) have been sold locally for slaughter, and have contributed to Queensland's exportable surplus of meat, but my Department does not keep separate records to show the source of the meat bought from the Australian Government.
