Mr BERNARD CORSER (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) - In view of the great loss being occasioned to cattle and pig producers in Queensland, due to the continuance of an illegal strike in that State, will the Government take action to ensure that fat stock be treated and made ready lor export, to Britain and other starving countries, thus using available refrigerated shipping space to lift Queensland meat instead of turning this shipping away empty? As this strike is not the responsibility of stockgrowers, who were urged to increase production and today are feeding stock which were ready for killing months ago, and whose difficulties and expenses have been increased by the present drought, will the Government take the immediate remedial action expected of any Government, so that the production of the country may be carried on without such appalling loss to the individual and to the State?
