Mr DEDMAN - I acknowledge the deep interest that the honorable member for Wakefield has taken in methods of minimizing or preventing damage from frost. I have not seen the report in the Sydney Sun to which he has referred; but the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research has liaison officers in all countries' of the world from whom it receives information on experiments of this character which take .place abroad. I shall bring the press report to the notice of the council and ask for a report as to whether there is any basis for the statement contained in it that the method outlined can be used to prevent frost damage. If there is any foundation for the statement, the honorable member may rest assured that the council itself will undertake experiments in relation to it.
