Mr FORDE (Capricornia) .- I should like some statement from the Prime Minister (Mr. Lyons) as to what business he proposes to bring down when the House re-assembles. Is it intended to bring forward the tariff schedule for discussion, and is a lengthy legislative programme contemplated? 'I quite understand that the Prime Minister, in accordance with the promise that he gave some days ago, intends to have the subject of unemployment discussed at the Premiers Conference ; but it is necessary that Parliament should meet as soon as possible after that conference has been held, because a grave responsibility rests upon us to relieve the unemployed before winter sets in. I hope that the Prime Minister will give the House some assurance regarding the date of meeting of Parliament, the business that will then be done, and the nature of the proposals for the relief of unemployment throughout Australia.
