Mr LUCK (BRADDON, TASMANIA) - My question to the acting Minister in charge of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization is prompted by the results of a current drilling programme in the tin-bearing areas of Renison Bell, on the west coast of Tasmania, where substantial reserves of highgrade ore have been disclosed. Does the Minister know whether any research work is being carried out by the C.S.I.R.O. minerals division on the possibility of increasing the percentage of tin recovered from this deposit, or similar deposits elsewhere?
