Mr MCMAHON - The Chief Veterinary Officer of the Department of Primary Industry has recently visited the United States, of America on an extended tour, and has investigated the marketing of crayfish tails in that country. He has now returned to Australia and submitted his report to me. I am glad to be able to inform the honorable member that, although, when I last discussed this matter with him, we had some doubt about whether there ;was a satisfactory market for midget tails, the Chief Veterinary Officer has been able to ascertain that the United States supermarkets will now find a ready market for the small tails that come from Western Australia. In fact, it is now thought that the quality of those tails is the best that «an be produced anywhere, and the Western Australian product is competing successfully in this market with the small tails produced in other countries.
