In 1971 the Commonwealth Government passed the "State Grants (Rural Reconstruction) Act" to provide $100m to assist rural industry to adjust itself to the severe downturn in income. The money was to be divided amongst the States to enable State Governments to make loans to farmers and pastoralists.
In Western Australia the Government passed the "Rural Reconstruction Scheme Act, 1971", to implement the Scheme.
