Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Prime Minister whether, as the result of a broadcast request made from Canberra as late as midnight last night, all mines in New South Wales are working to-day, and that the resumption of work by many miners has involved the sacrifice of conditions that they have enjoyed for 25 years? As the miners have responded to the appeal of the right honorable gentleman and, because of the grave danger in which Australia is placed, are prepared to forgo such privileges for the time -being, will the right honorable gentleman immediately set up a committee, in accordance with, the request of the miners, to inquire who are really responsible for the many disputes that arise in the coal-mining industry?
