Mr PATERSON (GIPPSLAND, VICTORIA) - Will the Minister for Supply and Development tell me whether he has been kept fully informed of the great extent and high quality of the recently discovered bauxite deposits in Gippsland? Will he also say whether the difficulties formerly encountered in obtaining equipment from abroad to deal with the bauxite have been overcome? I should like to know what progress has been made towards producing aluminium from the bauxite stage as against the mere fabrication of imported aluminium ingots ?
