Mr DAVIES (BRADDON, TASMANIA) - I address my question to the Minister for Trade. I ask him: Has he seen a statement attributed to the manager of the Tasmanian Timber Association, which was made yesterday, to the effect that more than four weeks have now elapsed since the timber industry made approaches to the Government and that in this time conditions in the industry have worsened considerably? In view of the seriousness of the matter, and in particular the unemployment which has resulted, especially in Tasmania, is the Minister in a position to intimate when the industry is likely to be given a decision on its approaches to the Government?
