Mr FAIRBAIRN (FARRER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I wish to ask the Minister in charge of the Commonwealth

Scientific and Industrial Research Organization a question without notice. Does he realize that the frequent moves of the organization's farm in the Australian Capital Territory have ruined a number of valuable long-term experiments and are unsettling to the skilled scientists who conduct these experiments? Is there any truth in the rumour that the site at Weetangera to which the farm is to be moved is only a temporary one? If so, will the Minister consider giving the farm a permanent home in the electorate of Farrer?
