Senator MCAULIFFE (QUEENSLAND) - Is the Leader of the Government in the Senate aware that at Wandoan, a country town in Queensland, there is a serious plague of mice which is ravaging the community? Is the Minister aware also that the 2 storekeepers in the town are facing financial ruin as most of their stock has been eaten and what is left has been destroyed by the fouling caused by the mice? As the Government is presently considering assistance to primary producers, will the Minister see what he can do by way of Commonwealth assistance for these unfortunate country storekeepers?
