Mr CHIFLEY - I do not know that I would be prepared to appoint a special committee for the purpose suggested by the honorable member. Shortages of certain commodities have been brought under the notice of the Government which are not easily explainable. It has been decided that the reasons for these shortages should be investigated by the Minister for Post-war Reconstruction (Mr. Dedman) and the Minister for Labour and National Service (Mr. Holloway). I shall be prepared to ask my two colleagues to extend their inquiries' to cover specific commodities to which the honorable member may direct attention.
