Mr CLEAVER (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - To the Minister for Primary Industry I address the following question without notice: Is the Minister aware that at Brecknock Harbour, north of Broome, in Western Australia, cultured pearls have been produced satisfactorily after an experimental period of under two years? Bearing in mind the potential value of this new industry, and the large number of people employed in the similar industry in Japan, will the Minister advise the House what encouragement the Government is already giving, or could extend, to private enterprise wishing to develop further this promising new field of production?
