Mr WILSON (Wimmera) .- I appeal to honorable members of the Opposition to allow the bill foreshadowed by the Minister for Commerce (Sir Earle Page) to be introduced without delay. I sympathize with their resentment at the "gagging" of the discussion of the unemployment problem yesterday, but I assure them that, from many points of view, some of which are of a technical character, the measure which the Minister for Commerce wishes honorable members to consider is urgent. I am well acquainted with the circumstances of many wheat-growers in this country, and I know that deplorable conditions exist in many wheat-growing areas. For this reason, I appeal to the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Curtin) to withdraw his amendment.
