Mr GIBBONS (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I have received the following telegram from the Fruitgrowers Co-operative Society, Orange, New South Wales : -

Local fruit-growers strongly oppose any relaxation embargo on imported apples which may arise in reported despatch 0,000 cases from Vancouver. Serious danger introducing fire blight disease. Request you protect our interests.

Is it a fact that apples are being imported from Vancouver, and, if so, what 3teps are being taken to prevent the introduction of fire blight disease into Australia ?

Suggest corrections
