Senator LAWRIE (QUEENSLAND) - Can the Minister representing the Minister for Primary Industry inform the Senate why the Cannon Hill, Brisbane, abattoir has lost its licence to process meat for sale in the United States? How long is this suspension likely to last? I point out that the peak of the meat export season is approaching.

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Air) - I cannot inform the Senate why the abattoir has lost its licence, but I can say that 1 appreciate the urgency of the matter and its importance to the abattoir concerned. I promise the honourable senator that I will make urgent inquiries and let him have an answer as soon as possible.
