Sir EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Recently, the Premier of New South Wales, Mr. McKell, announced that arrangements had been made for the early release of wire and other materials in short supply. He said that farmers should lodge their orders at once with their storekeepers, who, in turn, should have, them sponsored by a field officer of the Department of Agriculture. As practically all of those who last year suffered from the floods that, occurred in the northern rivers -district of New South Wales have not been able to obtain any barbed wire or fencing wire, will the Prime Minister have an inventory made of the quantity and location of wire _ that is available in Commonwealth and State departments, and publish it, so" that these persons may know whether or not there is any possibility of their being able to obtain supplies in the immediate, future?
