Mr FOX (HENTY, VICTORIA) - I wish to direct a question to the Minister for Shipping and Transport. Has the Minister's attention been drawn to a recent report concerning a spray-on antiskid road surface which has already reduced pedestrian crossing accidents by 87%, wet road accidents by 72%, rear end collisions by 73%, and accidents where the driver has lost control by 70% in areas of roads which have been treated by this material in the United Kingdom? lt is claimed that no major roadwork is necessary and that spraying can be done quickly at night time without disturbing the existing road surface.
