Mr BEATON (BENDIGO, VICTORIA) - I ask the Prime Minister a question. Several weeks ago the right honorable gentleman said that no estimate of losses due to the drought had been made up to that time. As the making of such an estimate, preliminary and approximate as it may be at this time, would seem a normal procedure for a national government, can the Prime Minister now give the House any idea of the direct or indirect costs of the drought? If not, will he arrange for such an estimate to be given to the House as soon as possible?
