Senator J B HAYES (Tasmania) . - I appeal to the Government to use every effort to have the report of the Tariff Board on the timber industry, which is said to be favourable to the application of the industry for protection, put into effect without delay. The position of the industry in Tasmania is absolutely desperate. Unemployment is as bad as it could possibly be. Winter is approaching, and if the industry is not assisted at once a number of men will be thrown out of work and will have no opportunity of obtaining employment n any other direction.
