Senator MILLINER (QUEENSLAND) - Will the Minister representing the Acting Minister for Health investigate the announcement by the head of the Chemistry Department at the University of Tasmania that he has developed a lead-free petrol which gives improved vehicle performance? In view of the poisonous contribution by leaded petrol to air pollution will the Minister ensure that if Professor Bloom's announcement is correct steps will be taken to ban lead from petrol in Australia?

Senator GREENWOOD - I am not aware of the reports to which the honourable senator has referred. I shall convey the question to the Acting Minister for

Health. I am sure that he will consult his colleagues with a view to examining the propositions which have been put forward and taking such action as an examination of those reports appears to make desirable.
