Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - At this stage I am sure that honorable senators will forgive me if I do not attempt to traverse the remarks which have been made in. the course of the debate. It will be sufficient if I indicate that what has been said has been noted and attention wilt be given to it. On the question of providing transport for our exports, I maysay that, with the prospect of a good season in Australia, the difficulty of providing sufficient transport may be serious. The matter is under consideration r and the Government are gathering information. So much depends upon thecharacter of the season that I am unable to publicly announce at present what we intend doing, but honorable senatorsmay be assured that the best that can be done for Australia to overcome the difficulty which has been suggested will be done by the Government.
