Thoroughbred Breeders Australia (TBA) has announced it will contribute $200,000 to fund research and development for the breeding industry. The money will be placed into a newly created thoroughbred R&D levy scheme and will be matched by the federal government. By making the substantial donation, TBA will enable research projects to begin early in the coming financial year. "This contribution will have an immediate impact as it means research can begin on issues that breeders know are important. The way the levy is collected, if we were to wait on the mandatory contributions it is unlikely we'd be able to start projects until 2018," said TBA president Basil Nolan. Under the new levy, which was included in the recent federal budget and will be in place in the new financial year, breeders will pay $10 per mare and $10 per stallion return. This will raise about $400,000 per year that will be put in the fund for R&D, with the federal government then matching every industry dollar. It is expected that with voluntary contributions, such as the money from TBA, some $1 million could be available to spend each year on research that benefits the thoroughbred breeding industry. Deputy Prime Minister and Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said the levy will produce a huge return for breeders. "This levy will provide industry with greater certainty about available funding in future years and enable forward-year planning to deliver priority R&D for the benefit of the whole industry," Mr Joyce said.
The National Party's election platform stressed that apartheid would preserve a market for white employment in which nonwhites could not compete. On the issues of black urbanisation, the regulation of nonwhite labour, influx control, social security, farm tariffs, and nonwhite taxation the United Party's policy remained contradictory and confused.  Its traditional bases of support not only took mutually exclusive positions, but found themselves increasingly at odds with each other. Smuts' reluctance to consider South African foreign policy against the mounting tensions of the Cold War also stirred up discontent, while the nationalists promised to purge the state and public service of communist sympathisers. 
WWE canceled the scheduled three-hour-long live Raw show on June 25 (which, coincidentally, was supposed to be a memorial for the Mr. McMahon character), and replaced the broadcast version with a tribute to his life and career, featuring past matches, segments from the Hard Knocks: The Chris Benoit Story DVD , and comments from wrestlers and announcers from the Raw , SmackDown! , and ECW brands. Shortly after the program aired, many of the aired comments were posted on . It was not until the program was nearly over that reports surfaced that police were working under the belief that Benoit murdered his wife and son before killing himself.
