Mr BEALE (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Supply) - I did see the report mentioned by the honorable member, and my impression was that the professor in question was speaking more about what he thought might be an increase in leukemia as a result of a general rise in the level of radiation throughout the world - due, by the way, to background radiation rather than to specific tests. There is a great body of scientific opinion on this matter. In response to the honorable member's request, I will ask the Government's advisers to prepare a statement on the matter and let him have it as early as possible.
