Mr Lucock (LYNE, NEW SOUTH WALES) k asked the Minister for Primary Industry, upon notice -

In view of the problems and difficulties being experienced by the poultry industry and its similarity of interest with those employed in the industry in other parts of the world, will he endeavour to arrange for the 1962 Conference of the World Science Poultry Association to be held in Australia?

Mr McMahon - The answer to the honorable member's question is as follows: -

I am pleased to be able to inform the honorable member that the Australian Government has issued an invitation to the World's Poultry Science Association to hold its 1962 congress in Australia. I am informed, however, that similar invitations have been extended by several other countries. The decision as to which of the invitations will be accepted will be taken at the meeting of the council of the association during the 1958 World Poultry Science Congress at Mexico City later this month. The Australian delegation at the 1958 congress- will include Commonwealth and State government officials and industry representatives.
