Mr TURNBULL (MALLEE, VICTORIA) - I preface a question to the Minister in charge of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization by stating that it has been widely reported that that organization has discovered a means of combating skeleton weed. Is this so? Can the Minister explain the method discovered? Will he arrange that the means of destruction be applied to the skeleton weed which, after rain, grows in patches between Parliament House and the Hotel Kurrajong in this city, so that we may witness its effectiveness at first hand?
