SirEARLE PAGE. - Will the Prime Minister take up with the Premier of New South Wales the matter of providing some form of transport for the timber which is accumulating at all railway stations on the north coast of that State on account of the shortage of railway trucks? If it be not possible to provide the trucks that are needed, will the right honorable gentleman examine the possibility of using vessels that were previously employed in this trade but were commandeered for use as mine-sweepers during the war, in order that this timber may be brought to Sydney and made available for the building of houses?
