Mr FOX (HENTY, VICTORIA) - Has the Minister for Supply seen a report that radio-active fish are presumed to have caused terrifying new diseases among Pacific Island natives in the Marshall Islands and Tahiti, who are stated to be suffering from incurable skin diseases as the result of eating fish which travelled from areas where United States atomic weapons were tested last year?
