Mr ARCHIE CAMERON (Barker) (12:41 PM) .- The Minister for Transport (Mr. Ward) is a prominent personality in a government which has behind it the greatest majority ever accorded to a. ministry in this Parliament. If he can induce his colleagues to believe that an inquiry into " the Brisbane line " is justified, he need not ask the Opposition to take action in the matter. He could do that in Cabinet, or he could even be instructed by the Australasian Council of Trade Unions to have it done. I would give 2½ roubles in Russian money to have the Minister brought before an inquiry in order to say what he knows about this matter. I challenge him to have an inquiry made into it. I dare him to do so.
