Senator HANNAN (VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister in charge of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization. I refer to recent Press and magazine announcements about the medical and industrial uses already being made overseas of the relatively new scientific development known as laser. Is the Minister able to say whether the C.S.I.R.O. or any other Australian scientific body is conducting research on this subject in Australia? Is the Minister able to say whether the laser is in use in Australian medicine or industry? If no such research is being undertaken, are there any scientific or financial reasons for this state of affairs?
