Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - The opinion seems to be widely held in Canberra that there is some - legal restriction upon the importation of milk into the Australian Capital Territory from outside areas. That is not so. Those who want to bring in milk are free to do so provided they supply the Department of Health with the names and addresses of the persons from whom the milk is to be obtained, bo that the department may take precautions to safeguard the health of the people. -Mr. Calwell. - There is an ordinance which forbids the importation of milk into the Territory.

Mr HOLLOWAY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - No, there is not. No doubt, the milk shortage would be aggravated if the number of cows in the Territory were reduced, but I do not think that that comes within my province.
