Mr PATERSON (GIPPSLAND, VICTORIA) - In to-day's issue of the Sydney Morning Herald, the chairman of the Commonwealth Dairy Pro duce Equalization Committee, Mr. James Purcell, is reported to have said that the man-power problem in the dairying industry has not been satisfactorily solved, and that much remains to be done in order to enable farmers to produce up to their normal capacity. Has the Minister for Commerce any information on the subject, and will he consider Mr. Purcell's suggestion that, if adequate supplies of dairy products are to be maintained, the industry must be declared " protected " ?
