Mr CHIFLEY - The matter of providing transport for timber and other materials was discussed by me with the State Minister for Transport, Mr. O'Sullivan, last week. I also took the opportunity of discussing it at some length with the Premier of New South Wales by telephone this morning. In addition to the transport agencymentioned by the right honorable gentleman, there has been the further suggestion that certain barges or tugs now in the possession of the Navy might be utilized. This is being examined by the Minister for Supply and Shipping. A third possible means is the organizing of motor transport. That, I understand, is the subject of a conference in Sydney to-day, between the Department of Transport and the motor interests concerned. , The right honorable gentleman may rest assured that the matter is being given close attention.
