Senator COOPER (Queensland) . - I suggest that, of the amount of £2,000 provided for miscellaneous investigations by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, a portion should be applied to an inquiry into a mechanical cotton-picker which, it is said, has been recently perfected in the United States of America. The cotton industry has been well established in Queensland, and every endeavour should be made to extend it. If the machine is successful, its use in Australia would go a long way to further the prosperity of the cotton industry.

Senator Sir George Pearce - The Government is obtaining reports from the New York office in regard to the machine.
