Mr CURTIN - I did not see the reference in the newspaper, but it was mentioned to. me that some such statement had been published. I have only to say in respect of racing that regulations will be gazetted either this evening or tomorrow. With respect to the honorable member's question about transport, I have no doubt that the Transport Control Board will deal with that, as it has already dealt with it, so far as railway traffic is concerned. I very much doubt the practicability of shifting horses by ship, because I very much doubt the capacity of this country to shift a lot of other things by ship. We have to ship requirements for war and we are already taking a heavy toll of the ordinary shipping facilities of this country. Increasing demands will be made upon our shipping for war purposes, and I cannot imagine that there will be much space left in the remainder of the shipping services for the transport of race-horses.
