Mr KING (WIMMERA, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Health in what countries foot and mouth disease is known to exist. Does Australia import any live-stock or meat of any kind from these countries? What precautions are taken by the Australian authorities to prevent the entry of foot and mouth disease through the importation of canned meats? Finally, can the Minister say what steps he, his department, or the Government, has taken to provide a remedy if, by accident, carelessness or fraud, the disease is brought to Australia?
