Mr HUGHES - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   Yes;but the Government has no knowledge of any purchases by Great Britain of Chinese tungsten ores, as reported in the press to have been the causeof dosing the mine. The Asiatic production comes principally from Burma, a part of the British Empire.

2.   Owing to the accumulated stocks held by the British Government at the end of the war, which have since been placed on the market, there is no demand for tungsten ores, either of Asiatic or Australian origin, in Great Britain.
