Mr HOLT (FAWKNER, VICTORIA) - Will the Minister repre senting the Minister for Supply and

Shipping inform me whether it is a fact that some industries in Victoria are now entering the seventh week in which they have not participated in any distribution of industrial coal? Has the honorable gentleman personally investigated this position? Will he give to the House an assurance that the distribution of coal which has so far been made, has been based on economic rather than political factors? Will he explain to the House the reasons for the apparently disproportionate distribution of coal as between the needs of gas manufacturers and the needs of industry generally?
