Mr COUTTS (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - My question to the Minister for Primary Industry relates to the fishing industry. Has the Minister seen sug gestions to the effect that a papal bull may shortly be issued which will cause a change in the dietary habits of some millions of Australians by promoting the consumption of meat on seven days a week? Is it considered that if this is done the consumption of fish will decline? If the Australian fishing industry is threatened with the loss of a considerable portion of the home market by this proposal, what action does the Government propose to take to rescue this struggling industry from being swamped by the threatened change in the eating habits of many Australians?
