Mr BREEN (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister for Supply seen a statement in the Sydney newspapers that Dr. Murphy, a metallurgical chemist at the Sydney Technical College, has discovered a method for recovering aluminium metal from bauxite? If so, will the Minister have an expert investigation made in order to determine whether it is possible, by means of Dr. Murphy's formula, to recover aluminium in commercial quantities?

Mr BEASLEY - I have not seen the statement, but, as the demand for aluminium is so great, I shall have an investigation made.
