Mr CASEY - The good work of the wool textile research laboratories of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization is widely known in respect of the development of Siroset, moth-proofing, fleece-proofing, drip-dry material, and the rest. This work has been done, and these things have been achieved, in the ordinary course of C.S.I.R.O. scientific research work. From time to time, however, officers who do particularly responsible jobs or achieve something novel are recommended for honours*. I instance the fact that Dr. Farnworth, who was respon sible for the development of the Siroset process, was awarded an M.B.E. in, I think, the last honours list. The matter generally will be kept under notice.
