Mr DEDMAN - I was not aware that blind workers in Queensland or elsewhere in the Commonwealth had lost their employment as the result of the restrictions imposed on the supply of cane. The restrictions have been applied, not by the Department of War Organization of Industry, but by the Department of Supply and Development. I shall ascertain whether the restrictions can be modified in order to make supplies of cane available to this section. If that be not possible, action, will be taken to absorb the unemployed men in some industry producing war materials.

Suggest corrections
