Mr WILLIAMS (ROBERTSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I have been ad vised by the secretary of the Wallarah Miners Lodge that a serious position is developing at the Wallarah colliery on account of the displacement of miners by ex-servicemen. It is suggested that additional miners could be employed on work in pillars, and an investigation by the authorities is requested. In view of the necessity to produce more coal, will the Minister representing the Minister for Supply and Shipping ask the Coal Commissioner to send the production manager to this pit, with a view to having the position thoroughly investigated and retaining in employment as many men as possible?
