Mr BEAZLEY (FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I understand that a survey was made recently by health experts in an endeavour to discover the factors in the diet of the natives of Manus Island that accounted for their superior physique. Can the Minister for External Territories say whether the survey was successful in discovering those factors, and if so, is it proposed to apply the knowledge obtained to improving the diet of other natives in adjacent areas?
