Mr SPEAKER - Order !

Mr MATHEWS - I think the public ought to be informed, through the press, that such is not the position. However, I would like to know from the Treasurer whether there is any chance of getting ships this week to remove from Newcastle the coal at grass there, in order that it may be brought to Victoria to give the manufacturers here an opportunity of carrying on their work, and prevent people from being thrown out of work? I would like to explain the position of the firm to which I have referred.

Mr SPEAKER - Order !

Mr MATHEWS - I merely wished to explain that if their works are compelled to close it will take fully a month to get them going again. .
