Mr BREEN (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for Supply and Development set up a Government buying commission to purchase base metals, such as tungsten, manganese and iron, direct from the miners, who, in the past, have been left at the mercy of the smelting combine? If the Minister will accede to this request, will he arrange to purchase the ores at grass rather than at railway stations?
