Senator COX (New South Wales) . - In regard to the statement by Mr. Kitchen, that the advertisement of Australian goods in Great Britain leaves something to be desired, honorable senators may be interested in my experiences abroad. When I was in the Old Country last year, I noticed that Australian fruit and other products could be purchased at the majority of the principal railway stations, and advertisements concerning them were prominently displayed in big emporiums. If Australian goods were sought they could generally De obtained. While in the north of Scotland, 1 actually saw Australian fruit being hawked for sale, showing that it is well known to the general public. I regret that persons on returning to Australia should see fit to make damaging statements about our advertising services in Great Britain.

Senator SirGEORGE PEARCE (Western Australia - Minister for External Affairs) [11.33]. - I shall bring the remarks of Senator Arkins concerning the threatened danger to Australian forests from the mistletoe, under the notice of the Minister administering the activities of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research.
