Senator HERBERT HAYS (Tasmania) . - Senator Guthrie has complained that a statement attributed to the Commonwealth Meteorologist was not correct. I can understand the difficulty in forecasting the seasons, but there is nothing to prevent a meteorologist from saying what the weather conditions over the whole of Australia have been during a given period. Senator Guthrie referred, not to forecasts, but to reports of weather actually experienced. The report to which the honorable senator referred has given the impression that the season has been normal, whereas over the greater part of Australia it has been abnormal.
