Senator COLLINGS (QUEENSLAND) (Minister for the Interior) - I am not aware of the number of regulations issued for the purpose of obtaining a continuous production of coal. I do not know that eight mines are now idle, as alleged. I am not prepared to disclose details of the Government's policy in this regard, as its policy generally is already known.
