Mr. -GUY. - The spraying season' is fast approaching in the orchard districts of Tasmania, and the orchardists of that State are greatly perturbed because no pumps- for overhead spraying outfits are available to them. No pumps of that kind have been received in Tasmania for the last five months. They are procurable in Sydney, but cannot be sent to Tasmania because of the unavailability of shipping space. Will the Minister representing the Minister for Supply and Shipping endeavour to provide shipping space immediately for the transport of the "Duplex" tyre pump for the over- , head spray outfits, and thus enable this important industry to function?
