Mr BADMAN (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Is it a fact that more than 25 tons of galvanized iron required for the construction of a camp at Ballarat was transported to the camp site, and that 3£ tons was left in the railway yard at Ballarat for some considerable time, although such material was required by primary producers and others? If so, will he take steps to ensure that similar bungling does not occur in the future?

Mr MAKIN - I know that galvanized iron has been in short supply; but I am not aware whether the facts are as stated by the honorable member. I shall, however, have inquiries made and shall inform the honorable member of the result.
