Senator COTTON - All that I can do in these circumstances is to check whether or not what the honourable senator has alleged is happening in all of the aspects that he mentioned. I shall check, first of all, whether it is happening. If it is I shall then inquire what quantity is involved, bow far out it is being dumped, what is the acid concerned, whether it is dumped in Commonwealth territory or State territory and whether what is being dumped is harmful. He will understand, I am sure, as my colleagues will, that this must be referred to the people concerned for precise information as to what is happening and what is being done about it.
