Senator ORMONDE - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for National Development. Has the Minister seen the report of the Joint Coal Board, published yesterday, which refers to the methods being used by oil companies to undercut coal through the medium of residual oil? If the Minister has not seen the report, will he study it at the first opportunity? I have in mind asking him this question next week. What does the Government propose to do to resist the infiltration by oil companies of the field of sales now occupied by the coal industry?
