Mr BERNARD CORSER (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) - Has the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture read in Queensland newspapers reports in which authorities on the meat industry described as " colossal ignorance" his statement that meat killing in Queensland would be extended to September or nearly October to enable some of the meat lost in the strike to be recovered ? If so, will the honorable gentleman inform the House on whose advice such a statement was made ? What can the Government or any one else do that will extendwhat is left of the killing season beyond the period when cattle were available to be slaughtered, or restore the prime condition which cattle carried prior to the last three months' period of drought and strike?
