Mr STORY (for Mr. Fleming) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

In view of the vote taken on the continuance or otherwise of the "Wool Pool" having been against such continuance, will the Government state what it intends to do in the matter of leaving the wool-growers to control their own affairs?

Mr HUGHES - The Government is not in favour of continuing the Wool Pool. If the wool-growers so desire, the Commonwealth is prepared to negotiate with the British Government in order to insure the best opportunities for the sale of the new clip. I have made certain suggestions to the Wool-growers Association, which they are now considering.
