Mr HARRISON (Wentworth) . - The Opposition has no objection to this departure, but would like to receive from the Government the assurance that there will not be the slightest interference with the activities of the committee, which has been doing excellent work although, as we know, it has experienced considerable difficulty in financing its operations. We appreciate the endeavours of the Government to stabilize the finances of this committee, and hope that it may find itself in a position to make available a greater sum because the peculiar position in which Australia is placed to-day, gives to it an unrivalled opportunity to place itself well on the map in respect of tobacco production. The committee is charged with the responsibility of giving to tobacco-growers advice concerning the best methods of producing their leaf. I suggest that the Government give a direction to the committee, asking it to give consideration to the possibilities of increasing production.
