Senator FINDLEY (Victoria) . - I direct attention to item 18 under Administrative Staff, North Australia. The sum of £4,000 is set aside for the maintenance, passages and burials of destitutes and lepers. Can the Minister say how many lepers have died in North Australia, and if there are destitute persons there receiving sustenance from the Government ? I notice also under the same division an item of £2,000 for the encouragement of primary production, and £1,500 for the botanic gardens, wages and general expenses. What form of primary production is to be encouraged in North Australia?
