Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Some weeks ago,I asked the Minister for Works and Housing a question regarding the shortage of roofing tiles for many homes in the northern district of New South Wales, particularly the Newcastle-Maitland district. Some homes are complete except for the roof. The honorable gentlemanreplied that he would make representations to the Minister for Labour and Industry in New South Wales, Mr. Hamilton Knight, for the purpose of ascertaining whether action could be taken to overcome the shortage. I now ask the Minister whether roofing tiles can be obtained in New South Wales? If not, will he make representations to have tiles imported from other States?
