Mr FULLER (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - In view of a complaint which I have received from the secretary of the Southern Division of the Wheat Growers Union that mills in the Riverina area are filled to capacity with stocks of chaff, hay, oats, and straw, and are unable to obtain trucks, for the transport of this fodder to New South Wales drought-stricken areas, will the Minister for Commerce, and 'Agriculture have investigations made into the allegations that trucks are being supplied by the New South Wales Railways Department for the transport to these areas of stocks pf Victorian and South Australian fodder? If that be so, will the Minister ask the New South Wales Government to arrange to supply the necessary trucks to southern mills in order not only to alleviate the storage position but also to avoid unemployment in the industry?
