Mr BOWDEN (GIPPSLAND, VICTORIA) - My question, which is addressed to the Minister for Health, has reference to the proposed ban on the importation of pigs from New Zealand and from Ireland because of the prevalence of rhinitis in those countries. According to the press the Minister proposes to impose the ban on 16th June next. If there is any risk of spreading this disease among the herds in Australia, why not impose the ban immediately instead of letting a month go by?
