Mr MAKIN (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Munitions) - For some time, the commodities referred to by the honorable member have been in short supply, and my department is greatly concerned about the ever-growing needs for defence purposes, and the difficulty it: meeting civil needs; but as far as possible the Government has endeavoured io make stocks of primary producers' requisites available to them. I hope that an opportunity will be presented in the future for increasing the supplies available to meet civil needs. Wherever possible, the matter will be viewed most sympathetically.
