asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has had brought to his notice any of the experiments of Dr. Voronoff in grafting an extra gland on to livestock for the purpose of producing a finer and more vigorous type; and, if so, whether these experiments can be looked upon as successful and will receive attention from his Department?

I am aware of Dr. Voronoff's work on gland grafting, and I have arranged, with Dr. Voronoff's concurrence for a small Commission of scientific men to examine and report upon the experimental work on sheep which has been carried out at the Government Breeding Station in Algeria. Owing to the bad season, the visit of the Commission has been postponed until October or November, when the grafted sheep will be available for examination.
