Mr COLEMAN (Reid) .- I ask the Minister when this House will have an opportunity of dealing with the numerous recommendations of the Tariff Board that have been tabled in this House during the last eighteen months. There have been 46 or 47 such recommendations affecting the tariff policy of the Commonwealth. Most of them recommend increases in the tariff. All the newspapers in Australia are filled with stories of factories closing down and hundreds of .people being thrown out of work. The time has arrived when this Government should grapple with the tariff question. I make a protest against the continued delay in dealing with, the matter.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
