WHEAT AND WOOL Melbourne, Dec. 6. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916
WHEAT AND WOOL Melbourne, Dec. G. The Prime Minister stated to-day that he huad hoped that finality would have been reached that day with regard to the sale of the Aus an wheat crop and wool clip to Gret Britain. A special meeting of the Wheat Board had been call ed for that day in anticipation of receiving a cable message from London in respect to tle wheat deal, but the board had been di? appointed. No message had arriv ed. The Cabinet crisis in Great Bri tain, which had culminated that day in the resignation of Mr. Asquit.h as Prime Minister, had doubtlessly absorbed the attention of the Ministers to such an extent that it had been impossible to give the speedy attention that would other wise have been given to such impor tant matiters.. In view of the latest developments those interested in the sale of Australian wheat and wool might have to wait for two or three days now before it would be. possible to arrive at finality in re gard to the projected deals.
