Mr CONELAN (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs whether he will approach the appropriate authority - which I understand is the Import Procurement Branch - to secure the release of motor chassis needed by firms engaged in sanitary services, particularly in Quensland. Owing to the large influx of troops in some areas, the demands on these services have been heavily increased. I understand that large numbers of these vehicles have been brought into Australia under the leaselend agreement, and I ask the Minister to take steps to see that some of them shall be made available for the carrying on of these essential services.
