Dr EVATT (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Minister for Trade a question regarding the suggested further increase of overseas freights. Has the Minister any plan to prevent that increase? Is he taking any step to prevent it? Will he consider the course of action that I suggested to him before - that is, to give the House an opportunity to amend the Australian Industries Preservation Act so as to give to some authority representative of all interests the power to fix freights, thus requiring freights to stay as they are until increased by such authority?
