Mr CONNOR (CUNNINGHAM, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for National Development, at his coming conference with the New South Wales Minister for Mines, discuss with that gentleman his statement of last May expressing concern at the possible exhaustion through present rates of consumption of New South Wales hard coking coal reserves by the year 2000? Will he also discuss with the New South Wales Minister for Mines the need for examining some controls over expanded exports of such coal? In addition, will he ask the Minister for Mines that additional reserves of such coal in New South Wales, when located and proven, be preserved for the steel industry and other Australian consumers?
