The Minister has accepted the report of the Australian Dried Fruits Corporation to increase the rate of charge and these Statutory Rules increase the rate of charge from its present operative rate of $10 per tonne to $15 per tonne from 1 July 1986. The Australian Dried Fruits Association supports the increase.
