Mr HUTCHINSON (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - Negotiations have recently been in progress between the Department of Commerce and the Victorian Government on the subject of allowing fat cattle to be sold off the Werribee irrigation farm. I should like an assurance from the Minister for Commerce that no hasty decision will be made that might result in the loss of hundreds of thousands of pounds, and that interested organizations will be consulted before definite action is taken. Will he have a test made of cattle from that part of the farm which is irrigated, in order to see whether they are free from disease?
