Mr MENZIES - The honorable member was good enough to indicate that, he intended to put this question, and I have made an inquiry concerning it. The information furnished to me is that the' Australian Iron and Steel Limited, in which the Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited is interested, has for some time held leases at Cockatoo Island but not at Koolan Island, in Yampi Sound. It is the leases at Koolan Island which, as the honorable member will know, the Yampi Sound Mining Company contemplated developing for the export of iron ore. There is no information in the department indicating that the Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited has acquired, or has attempted to acquire, any leases at Koolan Island. The embargo on the exportation of iron ore has not been lifted.
