Mr MARR - The Government is fully aware of the importance of the cattle tick problem. The eradication of this pest is naturally a matter for the consideration of the Commonwealth Government, in co-operation with the State Governments, and combined action is being taken. The occurrence of the pest in the Northern Territory has not come under my notice since I have taken over the control of the Department of Health ; but the Minister for Home Affairs (Mr. Parkhill), who administers the Northern Territory, is doubtless giving serious consideration to the eradication of cattle tick there.
