Senator BROWN (Queensland) . - I notice that, under division 15, an amount of £4,600 is provided as a' grant for investigations of the prickly pear. A similar provision for 1935-36 was fully expended. As considerable advance has been made in the eradication of prickly pear, I am at a loss to understand why the same provision should be made for that purpose this year.

Senator Sir George Pearce - The provision of £4,500 is made under an agreement entered into with the State of Queensland to provide that amount annually for investigation of the prickly pear.
