Mr CHAMBERS (ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Does the Prime Minister know that industry in South Australia is at a standstill because no coal is available? Will he have inquiries made to find out why the consumption of coal in South Australia was not tapered off when it became apparent that supplies were running short? It is remarkable that right up to within 24 hours of the complete breakdown of supplies, neon lights throughout South Australia were left ablaze, and full tramway and railway services were maintained. Will the Prime Minister confer with the Minister for Supply and Shipping to ensure that as many ships as possible are used within the next few days to carry coal for South Australian industries ?
