Mr FOX (HENTY, VICTORIA) - Some weeks ago, I "directed a question to the Minister for Supply concerning a report that new diseases were said to be appearing among Pacific Islands natives, and that these diseases had been caused by eating fish that had been rendered radio-active by American weapons tests in the Pacific. The Minister told me that he believed the story to be without foundation, but promised to have it further examined and to give me a reply. Is the Minister now in a position to answer my question?
