Senator LILLICO (TASMANIA) - I wish to address my question, which relates to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, to the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry. I ask: Is the Minister aware of the incidence of foot abscess in sheep in Tasmania, reported to cause a 5 per cent, death rate in some flocks? If it is not already so engaged, will the C.S.I.R.O. investigate methods of prevention and cure of this disease because, so far as I can ascertain, no authority seems able to advise sheep owners as to what effective action can be taken?
