Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The answers to the honorable senator's questions are as follows: -

1.   Investigations have not been made by any Commonwealth authority in connexion with the introduction into Australia of American hickory trees. As afforestation, except within the territories controlled by the Commonwealth, is a State function, the establishment of nurseries for this purpose would largely be a matter for State forestry departments.

2.   The Commonwealth Government will give consideration to the national aspect of this matter with a view to determining whether an investigation is desirable.
