Mr CURTIN - As I said in reply to an earlier question, I have not seen very much of what has appeared in the press quite recently. I did not know that President Roosevelt had made the statement or had taken the action mentioned by the honorable member. I know of no instance in which those who are engage"! in advising the Australian Government have placed their private interests before their public duties.

Mr MORGAN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - What about aluminium ?

Mr CURTIN - I have said that J know of no instance of it. If any specific information can be given to me, I shall most certainly take it into account. 1 have this to say : that whether they be business men, representatives of trade unions or any one else whom this Government asks to advise it, the Government is satisfied of their probity and patriotism.
