Mr CASEY - The C.S.I.R.O. has been seised of the skeleton weed problem for a number of years and has been doing active research on its own account and in collaboration with the State Departments of Agriculture in New South Wales and Victoria. It has produced a number of reports recording the results of research, in collaboration with the State governments. I have not heard of any dramatic finding in the last six months, but I shall certainly bring myself up to date on the matter and inform the honorable gentleman of the latest developments. I shall also go into the matter - or have it gone into - of the occurrence of skeleton weed in Canberra and the Australian Capital Territory.
