Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Minister for

Labour and National Service aware that, owing to the operation of the coal- miners' pension scheme in New South Wales, there is considered to be a shortage of labour in the coal-mining industry in that State? Will the Minister request the appropriate man-power officer within the State to arrange for the release of former coal-miners from industries in which they are now engaged so that they may resume work in the coal-mining industry and thus help to increase the available supplies of coal?
