Mr CHARLTON (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Prime Minister noticed the report in to-day's Argus to the effect that the miners have deliberately slowed down to reduce the outputof coal, and is he aware that Mr. C. James, the District Superintendent of Railways in New South Wales reports that the April haulage of coal was 448,653 tons, the May haulage 568,771 tons, and the June haulage 489,250 tons? The' July figures have not yet been ascertained, but I can say that they are in excess of those I have given, which Mr. James declares to be records, proving that there is no foundation for the newspaper statement.
