Mr CASEY - I am not anything like as well acquainted with itch mite as I should like to be. Politically speaking, I understand what the honorable gentleman means, but, from the physical point of view, I will certainly take immediate steps to become very much better acquainted with itch mite than I am at this moment. I will inform the honorable gentleman, not only what the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization is doing, but also what the State Departments of Agriculture and other appropriate bodies are doing. Foot rot is known only too well. It has been a continuing problem over the years and over the generations. Work is currently being done on foot rot. I should not like to set out precisely to answer the honorable gentleman's question, but I shall get myself up to date on it and advise him.
