Senator Sir WALTERCOOPER__ I address a question to the Minister in charge of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation. Has the Minister seen a statement attributed to Dr. John McConnachie Ingram, of the United Kingdom Meat Research Institute, and published in the " Producers Review " of October 1964, claiming that feeding sugar to pigs shortly before slaughter improves the keeping quality of the meat, and also that sugar feeding rapidly restores the condition of animals fatigued by their journey to the abattoir? Will the Minister indicate whether the Animal Research Laboratories of the C.S.I.R.O. have had experience of such treatment and, if so, with what result?
