Mr LLOYD (MURRAY, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for National Development whether he is aware of a new treatment process of fluid milk called ultra high temperature sterilisation, or UHT, which enables milk to be kept in a non-refrigerated but fresh condition for at least 6 months. Is the Minister aware that this milk is now produced in Australia? Will he consider the use of this type of milk before reaching a decision on the availability of milk for free milk schemes to which he referred in reply to an earlier question today?

Mr SWARTZ - I have no personal knowledge of the process that has been mentioned by the honourable member, but as it is a matter which concerns the Department of Health I will see that it is referred to my colleague, the Minister for Health, in another place and a suitable answer provided.
