Mr SCULLY - I shall have periodical surveys made andfurnish statements on the lines suggested by the honorable member. At present great difficulty is being experienced in obtaining sufficient shipping space to send flour to destinations abroad recommended by the British Ministry of Food. Some of the inland flour mills have had to reduce the number of shifts worked because of our inability to secure sufficient shipping to transport the flour overseas. The Government has recently been advised that it may expect this month a substantial tonnage of shipping in Australian waters; that should improve the position considerably.
