Senator COLLINGS asked the Minister representing the Minister for Commerce, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that the British Government agreed that the Central Wool Committee should allocate sufficient wools to employ all scours and carbonizing workers in Australia to capacity ?

2.   Is it a fact that although New South Wales scours have an annual capacity of 70,000,000 lb., and during 1938-39 season actually scoured 38,195,743 lb., they were allocated only 22,191,304 lb.?

3.   Is it a fact that as a result 200 men have already been dismissed and 200 more men are to go at the end of March?
