Mr BEASLEY - Is it a fact that the Prime Minister, on behalf of his Government, stated at the last meeting of the Premiers Conference, or the Loan Council, that his Government had no plans for dealing with the unemployment problem?

Mr LYONS - It is not correct to suggest that I made such a statement. All that was said then was that the Premiers Conference had concluded its deliberations in regard to the urgent and important matters then under its consideration, and that unemployment was a. subject which concerned both the States and the Commonwealth, and one to which they must give special consideration. It was decided that at the next meeting of the conference that matter should be definitely dealt with.
