Mr PATERSON (GIPPSLAND, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Commerce whether the Department of Commerce has interested itself in the new process for the taking off of sheepskins by air pressure instead of by the slaughterman's knife) and whether it has instructed its London veterinary officer to watch the result of a trial shipment, from New Zealand to Great Britain, of some carcasses that have been treated in this way ? Is the honorable gentleman able to say whether skins taken off in this way are freer from flaw than those taken off with the help of a knife? "
