Senator GUTHRIE (VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Home and Territories - (a) Is it a fact that Messrs. Vestey Brothers are closing down their splendid freezing works at Port Darwin ? (b) if so, do the Government realize the seriousness to Australia of such a retrograde step in the development of a necessary primary industry ? (c) do the Government intend to take any action to endeavour to encourage Vestey Brothers not to dismantle their works, or, generally, to protect employers in the Northern Territory, and in otherparts of Australia, from the persecution by certain unions ?
