Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for: Works and Housing whether, in the Newcastle coal-fields district, approximately 100 houses are complete with the excep tion of tile roofing. Is there only one tile-making firm within 100 miles of Newcastle? As this firm has tile-layers in its employ, are persons who are building homes privately unable to obtain tiles? Will the Minister, in conjunction with the Minister for Labour and Industry in New South Wales, endeavour to obtain supplies of tiles from other States in which there is not a shortage?
