Mr TURNBULL (MALLEE, VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister for Primary Industry. He may recall that on 30th September 1965 I addressed a question lo him in which I asked whether he was aware that aerial poison spraying and the casual use of deadly chemicals by official bodies and private persons continue to kill wild life and to wreck the balance of nature, to the detriment of primary industry. I asked the Minister whether he would make investigations with a view to using the full power of his Department to overcome the problem. His answer was one word - " Yes ". 1 now ask him: Has he made the investigations and, if so, with what result?
