Mr SPEAKER - Only if they are brief.

Mr GUY - They will make what I have said more understandable. I shall give the details to the Prime Minister. It appears that during last week and this week or two the Woniora, which normally requires four gangs, had only two gangs available to it and had to sail short of approximately 25 per cent. of its outward cargo. For the Lutana, which normally requires four gangs, only one gangwas available, although the vesselwas loaded partly with perishable cargo. The Lanena requires four gangs, but could get only one. This vessel was loaded largelywith commodities urgently required for defence purposes. The Wannon received only two gangs. The Wareatea required three gangs, but no labourwas offering.

Mr SPEAKER - Order !
