Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Can the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture say whether it is a fact that hides and skins from the Maitland abattoirs have to be carted to the rail-head at Maitland for transport by rail, and that when they reach Darling

Harbour they have again to be handled by motor trucks, thus necessitating their being handled three times? Can he say whether requests have been made by the West Maitland Municipal Council, through me, that the abattoirs authorities be permitted to transport their hides and skins direct to Sydney, as is done from Aberdeen and Canberra?
