Senator LYNCH - I desire to ask the Minister representing the Prime Minister whether the action of the Government in recently supplying me with all the information they possess on wheat-growing, an industry that supports some 200,000 adults, which information was contained on two pages of foolscap, while at the same time supplying me with information on the metalliferous and coal industriesof the Commonwealth, covering forty pages of foolscap, is in keeping with the respective importance of things, or calculated to enable honorable senators to give an intelligent decision when holding the scales evenly between the several industries of the Commonwealth?
