Mr WENTWORTH (MACKELLAR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Minister for Health been directed to the article in this morning's " Sydney Morning Herald" by Professor Campbell, Professor of Agricultural Economics at the University of Sydney, which criticises some aspects of the administration of the animal and plant quarantine service? Is the Minister aware that there is considerable dissatisfaction in regard to the difficulty of importing into Australia new strains of plants and animals for the improvement of our primary production? Has he any constructive suggestions to make as to the way in which these objections may be met without any breach of the security of quarantine or of the proper protection which quarantine gives us? Has he any plan to put before the House in relation to the valid and weighty points raised by Professor Campbell?
