Mr LYONS - I have notified the State Premiers that the Government desires the conference to take place at the earliest convenient date. The Commonwealth Government desires that the matter shall be discussed without avoidable loss of time.

Mr.E. J. HARRISON.- Believing that the only solution of the unemployment difficulty will be through private enterprise, I ask the Minister in charge of industry whether the Government will consider the advisability of convening a conference of industrial and commercial leaders with the object of discussing and evolving some practical scheme for the re-employment of our vast and everincreasing army of unemployed? If so, willthe Government consider the problem in particular relation to theyouth of the country, and the effect which their failure to enter industrial and commercial life must have on the economic future of the country?
