Senator FOLL (QUEENSLAND) - Is the Leader of the Senate aware that as the result of very bad bungling on the part of the Minister for War Organization of Industry in respect of the rationing of clothing and textiles, a wild orgy of buying, according to press reports, has set in, and, in order to be able to purchase clothes immediately, many people have been selling their war savings certificates at a time when it is most desirable that they should not do so? Will the Minister bring to the notice of the Prime Minister this error of judgment on the part of his colleague? Will he also impress upon the Minister for War Organization of Industry, that the latter when contemplating taking action of this kind in the future, should consult with people who know something about the matter and are able to put him on the right track?
