Mr SWARTZ (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - Will the Minister for Territories inform honorable members of the stage reached in the development of the rice project in the Adelaide River District of the Northern Territory? Could he also indicate the acreage planted by Territory Rice during the season? Has the harvest been completed, and has he any idea of the size and quality of the crop? Has he any information regarding proposed milling facilities in the Territory, or the method by which the rice becoming available will be marketed? Could the Minister say what progress is being made with his own department's experimental plot in the Sixty Mile area? What have been the results, and what are the prospects of future operations in the area?
