Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) . - During the discussion this afternoon I made a statement, to the. effect, that I. had purchased certain wire fromthe. Newcastle Company, meaning the BrokenHill Proprietary Company. From what

Senator Seniorhas said; it would appear that there is a company operating in Newcastle manufacturing wire which is. not identical, nominally, with the Broken Hill Proprietary Company. The only reason' I had fox asserting that I purchased from the Broken Hill Proprietary Company was that my agent in Sydney said that he had purchased the material from the Newcastle Company, In the circumstances I regret having made the statement, but at the same time I would like to see the share register of the Rylands Wire Company in Newcastle to ascertain the names of the shareholders.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Senate adjourned at 11.3 p.m.
