Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Primary Industry, upon notice:

What has been the (a) Australian production and (b) amount of imports of (i) eucalyptus dives or peritone and (ii) cineole for each of the last 3 financial years.

Mr Sinclair - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Eucalyptus dives is a species of eucalypt and occurs as several varieties, each with a distinctly different composition of oil. It is one of about 12 eucalypt species from which commercial quantities of medicinal, industrial and perfumery oils are obtained. Statistics of production and trade do not differentiate between the various oils obtained from eucalypts.

The following is the recorded Australian production and imports of eucalyptus oil for each of the last three financial years for which statistics are available:


The information on production is thought to be incomplete as some of the smaller operations carried out on private property may not be included.
