Mr WILSON (WIMMERA, VICTORIA) - Will the Minister for Transport favorably consider making some provision for the transport of unemployed persons to areas where there is abundant work in connexion with fruit picking, wheat harvesting, and the harvesting of perishable products generally? Will the honorable gentleman confer with the State railway authorities, with a view to providing return railway fares for those who are prepared to accept employment in areas where much harvesting and other work has to be done and labour is not available to do it?
