Mr SCULLY - I have been informed by telegram that the results of the sale of Werribee beef in the Melbourne markets since the lifting of the ban were highly satisfactory. One truck created a record at the sales, bringing an average price of over £27 a head, despite the fact that the market was 30s. lower than on the previous sale day. The whole consignment averaged well over £23 a head. That, in itself, shows the ready demand for this very choice beef on the Melbourne market. I have been advised that the whole method of disposal has been functioning most satisfactorily, and that the public are asking for this meat.
