Mr ABBOTT (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) -Some time ago, I asked the Minister for Commerce whether he would take steps to have wool which is awaiting appraisement in brokers' stores insured against war risk, but so far have not been advised that this has been done. Pending arrangements for such insurance, will the Minister take up with the Central Wool Committee the question of having a 1-lb. sample of wool drawn from each line as it enters brokers' stores, such samples to be kept apart from the bulk stores in order that, should the stored wool be destroyed by enemy action, samples will be available for valuation for insurance purposes?
