Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Prime Minister aware of the recent report to the effect that Mr. Wybrow, secretary of the Australian Coal Association, Mr. Ballard, fuel manager of the Victorian State Electricity Commission, and Mr. Winning, legal officer of the Joint Coal Board, have suggested that an excise duty be placed on industrial diesel oil and other fuel oil equivalent to the existing customs duty so that unfair competition with the Australian coal industry can be reduced? Will the Government consider the suggestion that has been advanced by these men in public life?
