Mr KEARNEY (CUNNINGHAM, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Last week, in reply to my question, the Minister for Supply advised that about 100 stations, which have been referred to as " sticky paper " stations, were scattered throughout Australia. As the Minister did not give a complete answer to my question, I again ask him whether any of these stations are located in the WoIIongong-Port Kembla district. If not, why is not a check made on the amount of radio-activity in this heavily populated industrial district? Are similar stations located at other major centres of population in Australia? Will the Minister provide a statement of information which will convey to the public the results of tests made at the 100 or so stations scattered throughout the Commonwealth for the recording of the amount of radio-activity in Australia?
