Mr Bryant t asked the Minister for Primary Industry, upon notice -

1.   Has he noted the recommendations made by a Western Australian Parliamentary Select Committee on Native Welfare which suggest the establishment of a pastoral industry?

2.   Will he have an investigation carried out into the practicability of the suggestion?

Mr McMahon - The answer to the honorable member's questions is as follows: -

I am informed by my department, which has examined the report of the Western Australian Parliamentary Select Committee on Native Welfare, that the suggestion referred to by the honorable member relates to the establishment originally of a small herd of cattle to provide fresh meat for the natives in the Warburton area. The matter is a State responsibility and the Western Australian authorities are well informed on the prospects of running cattle in the area concerned.
