Mr MARR (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - A large number of men in the wool-scouring industry are being put off for lack of wool to scour, and 1 therefore ask the Prime Minister if he will make wool available from the supply awaiting shipment? I have received telegrams from practically all the woolscouring works in and about the metropolis of New South "Wales. Messrs. Swinburne Brothers are closing this week; Henry Haigh and Sons Limited, of Liverpool, having no wool to scour, have practically closed down ; Messrs. Swinboume and Stephen have put off thirty-seven men, and thirty-three more will finish this week; and the position is about the same with Messrs. Sugden and Company Limited and Messrs Wright and Bruce.
