§ 23. Mr. P. Wells
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can now make available to farmers with no heavy lifting gear, three-bushel sacks instead of the four-bushel sacks now available.
Mr. T. Williams
No. Sacks are not normally supplied to farmers through my Department though during each of the last seven years I have arranged for a substantial number of two-bushel hessian52W sacks to be available to farmers to augment the supply of the usual four-bushel grain sack. A limited supply of the two-bushel sacks will again be made available for the coming harvest. I am not aware of a demand for three-bushel sacks.
