Dr EARLE PAGE (for Mr. Bruce) - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   Yes.

2.   The proposal is still under consideration. It was first put forward in connexion with the initiation of investigations on the cold storage and preservation of food. Later, similar work was suggested as appropriate for investigation by an organization to be set up for the study of tropical agricultural problems. Advice on the whole question of such work will be obtained from Dr. J. B. Orr, Director of the Rowett Research Institute, Scotland, and from Sir Arnold Theiler, late Director of the Veterinary Research Institute, Onderstepoort, South Africa, who are both in Australia at the present time.
