Mr NELSON - Is the Minister for Health aware that the northern portion of the Northern Territory is the breeding ground for cattle tick, and that all expenditure incurred for the eradication or control of the tick will prove abortive if adequate steps are not taken for the suppression of ticks in the north? Is the Minister aware that an area of 250,000 square miles, which is now free of the tick, is threatened by it because the Federal Government will not spend a few thousand pounds on control measures? If he is aware of this, what does he propose to do about it?
