Mr MURRAY (HERBERT, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Minister in charge of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization whether he has authorized or directed any investigation by any officers of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization into the food preserving process known as accelerated freeze drying. If he has not, will he consider doing so at an early date? Further, will the Minister agree that the results already reported to be achieved by the United Kingdom Department of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries, in conjunction with the Aberdeen University, the Vickers Armstrong company and the Mallow sugar company in Ireland, suggest that this process could have very great possibilities for practical economic use in Australia?
