Mr McKenzie (Diamond Valley) asked the Minister represent ing the Minister for Primary Industry, upon notice:

What (a) quantity and (b) value of (i) ambergris, (ii) whale meal and (iii) whale solubles was produced in Australia in 1972.

Mr Grassby - The Minister for Primary Industry has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

I regret that under the provisions of the Census and Statistics Act the detailed information sought by the honourable member is confidential. The Bureau of Census and Statistics only publishes the total value of whale meal, solubles and other by-products. This amounted to $585,000 in 1972.
