Mr McEWEN - I do not know of the product to which the honourable member refers. I do know, of course, of the qualities of wool in respect to inflammability and heat resistance. They are very high indeed. To that extent it is turned to very much by the aircraft and other industries. It is really not the function of government to take the initiative in persuading industry and business to use a new product. It certainly is part of the function of government to see that every opportunity is made available for there to be knowledge of these products and then for business to make its own judgment in its own sphere on whether they should be used.
