Mr H V JOHNSON (KALGOORLIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Has the Minister for Defence Production given consideration lo my letter to him dated 24th April last, in which I asked him to make sufficient provision for the conversion of acid plants so that more Norseman pyrites could be used in the manufacture of sulphur? Did the sulphuric acid committee present a report on the operation of the sulphuric acid bounty? Did that report deal with the cost of converting pyrites from Norseman, compared with the cost of converting pyrites from the eastern States? If so, will the Minister make this report available to honorable members before the debate on the motion for the second reading of th? Sulphuric Acid Bounty Bill is resumed? Further, is the present bounty inadequate to encourage increased production of sulphuric acid from Norseman, which is the only place where a mine is operated for pyrites alone?
