Mr RILEY (COOK, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Prime Minister inform the House who are the members of the special Cabinet sub-committee that is inquiring about the relief of unemployment? If the Minister for Customs is not a member of that body, will the Prime Minister take steps to ensure that that gentleman is kept closely in touch with the committee's desires, so that men may be retained in work rather than thrown out of industry?

Mr LYONS - The members of the special sub-committee are the AssistantTreasurer (Mr. Bruce), the VicePresident of the Executive Council (Senator McLachlan), Senator Massy Greene, and myself. The committee is in a position to obtain any information it desires from the customs or any other department.
