Mr CURTIN (Premantle) (6:16 AM) . -I direct attention to the fact that on the 10th May last I dealt with certain aspects of the establishment of the alkali industry in Australia. I now simply say to the Prime Minister (Mr. Lyons) that I have prepared a memorandum setting out my views, whichI invite him to read and consider in conjunction with the observations that I made on the 10th May. I feel quite positive, notwithstanding the rejoinders to my previous submission, that upon a reconsideration of the matter he will see that there is some weight behind the contention thatan investigation should be made of the claims of Mr. McPhail.
