Mr ANTHONY - I ask the Prime Minister whether the conclusion of the lend-lease arrangement with the United Statesof America now makes it possible for the Commonwealth Government to make availableto the Commonwealth Disposals Commission numerous tractors and motor vehicles and other equipment of that type which is on site in variousparts of Australia. A serious shortage of these vehicles existsin Australia, particularly tractors, and it is reported that a considerable quantity awaits disposal. If that is the case, will the Prime Minister give an imperative instruction to the appropriate departments that this plant he released as soon as possible?
