Mr JAMES -Will the Minister for

Transport inform me whether he is the supreme authority in transport matters or whether the State Ministers are supreme? I ask the question because certain munitions workers in the coalmining districts are being required to make a round journey of approximately 90 miles by bus and train to and from their work because the South Maitland Railway Company has refused to run a train to connect with the government railway service. Munitions workers at both Rutherford and Newcastle are involved in this matter. I ask the Minister to take action to remedy the situation.
