Mr McMAHON - I think that the remarks of the honorable gentleman are correct, and that the production of cultured pearls off the Western Australian coast does give opportunities for expansion and profitable development. I well remember the initial stages of this enterprise, when the people concerned came to me and asked for the help needed to establish the industry. I think that we gave all the help that they needed, and since that date they seem to have gone from success to success. I hope that they continue to do so. So far as I am aware they have not asked us to give further help, but if the honorable gentleman can let me have any particulars of additional help needed I shall take the matter up with my department.
