Mr ANTHONY - In view of the serious decline of butter production owing to the uneconomic prices prevailing in the dairying industry, will the Minister for Commerce state when a decision will be announced regarding the report recently made to the Government by the sub-committee appointed to inquire into the conditions in the industry? Will the Minister also say when that report will be available to honorable members for perusal ?

Mr SCULLY - .The whole matter is now under consideration. It has been the subject of investigation by a departmental sub-committee, whose report will, I understand be in my hands not later than to-morrow. It must then be dealt with by Cabinet at a later date. We are doing all we possibly can to expedite the whole matter, and after the investigation is complete all the information on the subject will be available to the honorable member.

Sitting suspended from 6.16 to S p.m.
