Mr Swartz z asked the Minister in charge of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, upon notice -

1.   Are rain-making experiments still being conducted by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Queensland?

2.   If so, what areas are being covered, and what results have been achieved?

Dr Donald Cameron (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follows: -

1.   Yes.

2.   A comprehensive experiment is being conducted over the Darling Downs. It is only in its second year and so far insufficient results have been accumulated to be significant. It appears, however, that there are relatively frequent occurrences of clouds suitable for silver iodide seeding.
