Mr WENTWORTH (MACKELLAR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister for Labour and National Service seen reports that, because of congestion on the wharfs at Townsville, the Queensland railways authorities have been refusing to carry concentrates and metal from Mr Isa and therefore, are unable to provide rail trucks for the back loading of coal? Is it a fact that, because of this circumstance, continuity of work at Mr Isa is threatened immediately and may be threatened further when the wet season begins and stocks of coal, which ought to be built up now before the railway closes, are not available?
