Will the honorable gentleman confer with the Minister for Commerce, in order that he may acquaint himself of the necessity for maintaining, in the national interest, food production in particular, and various other phases of primary production, with a view to ensuring that proper consideration shall be given to the man-power requirements of these industries?
