Dame ENID LYONS (DARWIN, TASMANIA) - Is the Prime Minister aware that two day3 before he stated in this House that Tasmanian shipping had increased by 50 per centover pre-war figures, the Premier of Tasmania informed the Minister for- Supply and Shipping that there was 10,000 tons less shipping on the north-west coast of Tasmania than in 1939, and 3,500 tons less on the Hobart-Melbourne run? In view of this apparent discrepancy, will the Prime Minister have prepared a detailed statement covering exports, imports, passenger traffic and shipping tonnage for the two years 1939 and 1946 ?
