Mr CURTIN - Tie whole subject of fifth-column work and sabotage is under the direction of the Military Intelligence authorities, with whose activities I do not interfere, because they are much more competent than I to deal with such matters. I propose to have a discussion to-morrow with the representatives of the coal-miners and the coal-owners. I cannot add anything fresh to what I have already said about the importance of coal production. I know that irritating forces are at work. What their origin is I do not know. No one has been able to place their finger upon it. This is not the only country in which this is occurring. I can only say that I hope for the best and shall do my best to get it.
