Mr ABBOTT (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for War Organization of Industry whether, in view of the acute shortage of labour and the necessity for economy in the use of labour and materials in Australia, he will take steps to discuss with the Government of New South Wales the advisability of not proceeding with an order conveyed to the pastoralists of that State to flyproof windows and doors to all shearers' huts and kitchens before the next shearing season? Will the honorable gentleman also ask that the order be suspended until such time as adequate labour and materials are available for the purpose?
