Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Having regard to the great importance of maintaining operations in our food-producing industries, and to the fact that the labour supply in many country districts is to-day so seriously depleted that a great deal of work on farms has to be left undone, thereby seriously reducing production although the maintenance of food supplies for our fighting services and those of our Allies is of vital importance, I ask the Minister for Labour and National Service whether he will order a close examination of the position, particularly in the food-producing industries, in order to ensure that the essential labour requirements of. those industries shall not be withdrawn to a disastrous degree?
