Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Primary Industry) - I was not aware that a great number of people are killed by tractors overturning on them, so I am not able to give the honorable gentleman the statistics for which he asks. As to the second part of his question, I did not know that there was an appliance that could be attached to a tractor in order to prevent this kind of accident happening. I suggest that the honorable gentleman might refer this matter to the tractor testing station at Werribee. That station has been established for this purpose, and I am sure that if the honorable member referred the matter to the committee controlling the station, it would have a demonstration carried out and the necessary publicity given. As to the last part of the honorable member's question, I shall draw the attention of my colleague to the fact that the test is taking place and see if some publicity can be given to it.
