Mr ABBOTT (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Some time ago, I asked the Prime Minister a question relating to the hold-up of trucks loaded with wool, at Darling Harbour over the week-ends. The right honorable gentleman informed me that the matter was being investigated and that a conference was being convened in order to see what might be done. I understand that this week a conference was held at Canberra between representatives of the Storeman and Packers Union and representatives of the Woolbrokers, under the chairmanship of the Minister for Labour and National Service. Is the Minister representing the Prime Minister able to make a statement as to whether or not the matter has been satisfactorily determined?
