Mr FORDE - The Tariff Board conducted an investigation of the cotton industry, and some months ago submitted a report to the Minister for Trade and Customs. Owing to the unavoidable absence of the late Senator Keane overseas, there was some delay in considering the report. The Minister for Post-war Reconstruction, as Minister for Trade and Customs, gave some consideration to it. Today, I asked the new Minister for Trade and Customs (Senator J. M.
