Mr Scully y. - On the 3rd September, the honorable member for Forrest (Mr. Prowse) asked me the following question, upon notice: -

Will he inform the House the number of rabbit skins sold during the months of April, May, June and July in each of the States of the Commonwealth, and the average price realized ?

The information is as follows. -

The quantity of rabbit skins sold at auction and the average prices realized in the States of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia during the months of April, May, June and July, 1942, are set out hereunder: -


Notes. - ( 1 ) Rabbit skins are not sold by auction in Tasmania and statistics of quantities sold are not available. Owing to climatic conditions Tasmanian skins are of high quality. Prices paid by the principal main land firm buying in Tasmania averaged between 70d. and 75d. per lb. (2) Rabbit skins quantities in Queensland are negligible. (3) The average prices in the above table cover both "sleeved" and "butchered" skins.
