Senator FINDLEY (Victoria) , - Provision is made in the schedule for the expenditure of £2,600 on the Department of Health. As very serious damage has, and is being done by pests, it is very important, from a health viewpoint, that fruit of the best quality should be produced. The men on the land have experienced considerable hardships during the last few seasons, and, in some cases, have received little or no return for their labour.

Senator Crawford - That matter should be discussed in connexion with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research. There is no vote for that department in this bill.

SenatorFINDLEY.- We are told that, in order to ensure good health, we should eat more fruit, and if we cannot procure wholesome fruit, our health is likely to be undermined.
