Mr SCULLY - The Government intends to do all that it can to encourage slaughtering operations in the country. Provision has been made for the opening of establishments in country centres to which, in some instances, lambs may be taken for treatment direct from the holdings on which they have been raised, thus avoiding considerable transport and the wastage that has been apparent in connexion with the overseas export of lambs. In New South Wales, there are most up-to-date killing works at Daroobalgie in the Forbes district, Aberdeen, Orange, Bourke and Nimitabel; and in Victoria at Bendigo, Ballarat and Portland. I have discussed with the Minister for Agriculture of Victoria, the possibility of opening the Donald works. I hope that the lamb producers of the respective States will take full advantage of the facilities afforded. They may have their lambs processed at a set rate, under agreement with the Commonwealth Government, and the lambs will be purchased according to quality, thus ensuring that producers will receive full value for them.
