Mr SPEAKER - Order! I must interrupt the honorable member to refer to the noise in the chamber, particularly from the Opposition front bench, and ask that it cease.

Mr Ward - Keep quiet!

Mr SPEAKER - Order! The honorable gentleman will withdraw that remark.

Mr Ward - I spoke to my colleague.

Mr SPEAKER - The honorable gentleman will withdraw the remark.

Mr Ward - I will certainly do so if you take objection to it, Mr. Speaker.

Mr SPEAKER - I take objection to it.

Mr Ward - Then I withdraw it.

Mr CLEAVER - I was saying that Government supporters have not only spoken in the House recently, but have also made other strong representations in respect of the Western Australian Jarrah Export Association and the whole of the important timber industry in Western Australia.

Mr SPEAKER - Order! What is the question that the honorable gentleman is asking?

Mr CLEAVER - Now that I have given that preliminary reference my question is: Is the Minister in a position to inform the House whether a review of the matter to which I have referred, and which was promised some weeks ago, has been completed, and whether some practical action on it is to be taken?
