Senator POYSER (VICTORIA) - I address a question to the Minister for Health. On 16th March I addressed a question to the Minister who then represented the Minister for Health concerning tests in New South Wales and Victoria which indicated that human mothers' milk could contain up to 20 times the amount of DDT that is acceptable to dairy milk marketing authorities. Can the Minister provide me with any further information on this matter, as I regard this as a very serious situation? If the information contained in my question is accurate this matter should be the subject of urgent action by the Government to ban the use of DDT in Australia.
