Mr ABBOTT - Has the Prime Minister seen the paragraph in last night's Melbourne Herald in which Mr. Foggon, Oversea Traffic Manager in Sydney for MacDonald, Hamilton and Company, who recently completed a visit to Britain, is reported to have said that plenty of British ships were now available to carry Australian food to Britain and that he could not understand how Australia was limited by shortage of ships in sending food? In view of the importance of despatching food to Britain at the greatest possible speed, what comment has the Prime Minister to make on Mr. Foggon's statement?
