Mr CALDER (NORTHERN TERRITORY) - My question is directed to the Minister for National Development. I refer to my previous remarks in this place concerning the manufacture of bio-super from rock phosphate in the vicinity of Batchelor in the Northern Territory. Owing to the importance of superphosphate to this part of the Territory and also of such an industry to the north. I ask: Will the Minister have discussions with the Ministerincharge of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation with a view to directing the excellent research work done by his Department towards using this valuable resource as the basis for setting up a works in the area for the manufacture of bio-super?

Mr SWARTZ (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for National Development) - I will be pleased to have discussions on this important matter with my colleague.
