Mr BEASLEY - A few days ago, the honorable member for Forrest (Mr. Prowse) waited upon me in connexion with this matter.

Mr James - I approached the Minister in the matter some months ago.

Mr BEASLEY - The Minister for Mines in Western Australia also wired me on the subject, and the honorable member for Hunter (Mr. James) ha? been most persistent in his advocacy of the need to make boots available to minors. This subject is receiving constant attention; I am not unmindful of the shortages of miners' boots, and of the difficulties that arise from time to time. If honorable members who are interested in this matter, and have knowledge of the shortages, will bring the facts to my notice, I undertake to see that supplies are made available.
