Mr HUGHES - On the 7th July, the honorable member for Barrier (Mr. Considine) asked me a question as to whether I would lay on the table of the House, a copy of an agreement betweenthe Broken Hill mining companies and the British Board of Trade. I then. re-, plied that I was under the. impression that I had previously informed the honorable member that the terms of the agreement which he has in mind were not completed, and, therefore, a copy could not be laid on the table. I have since made furtherinquiries and ascertained that my memory served me right when I replied to the honorable member on the 7th July. I desire to further inform him that the details of the contract, to which the parties are the Zinc Producers Association and the British Board of Trade, have not yet. been finalized. When the agreement is received, the question of tabling it will be duly considered.
