Mr MALCOLM FRASER (WANNON, VICTORIA) - I ask the

Minister in charge of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization whether that organization has investigated the problem of shine in woollen fabrics. If it has, what are the results of such investigations? I feel that all honorable members, by their presence here, belong to a sedentary profession and should have a vested interest in this question. If the C.S.I.R.O. has not done research in this matter, will the Minister bring the suggestion to the notice of his officers? If woollen suits did not become shiny their present competitive advantage over synthetics would be greatly enhanced.
