Mr HUGHES - The question was raised last week, when I said that I would see what could be done to make freight available. At least four Commonwealth vessels arc now carrying coal, and I have been conferring with the Manager of the Commonwealth fleet as to the extent to which other vessels could be made temporarily available. Of course, our vessels, like private vessels, are under contracts to load cargo.

At the Premiers' Conference, which meets at the end of the week, an opportunity will be given to discuss the matter, which I recognise to be of very great importance.
