Mr BEASLEY -s-It is a fact that there has been a shortage of timber in some cases. No reports have been received of the water shortage referred to by the honorable member, but the shortage of timber is due to an accumulation of conditions which have manifested themselves in many ways, relating not only to man-power but also to transport facilities. The matter is being watched almost daily by the Coal Commissioner. The fact is that our coal production is at a very' high level, which I am very pleased to announce, but the other matter is important and will be watched very closely.
