Mr Bennett asked the Minister for the Environment and Conservation, upon notice:

Will he investigate, in consultation with the States, the possibilities of having installed, for the protection of local fauna, warning signs on country roads indicating the type of fauna in that area and the degree of caution required for their protection.

Dr Cass - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

I have been informed that the Australian Committee on Road Devices has prepared a manual recommending uniform warning signs, including one relating to kangaroos and that the Australian Transport Advisory Council will consider the manual at its next meeting. I will certainly arrange for the honourable member's thoughtful suggestion to be drawn to the attention of the Australian Fauna Authorities Conference (AFAC). If AFAC recommends that further action be taken, I will ask my colleague the Minister for Transport to have the Australian Committee on Road Devices re-examine the question.
