Mr BAMFORD (HERBERT, QUEENSLAND) - During a debate which took place on Thursday last, concerning the contemplated importation of Italians into Queensland, I made certain statements which are fully corroborated by the following paragraph', which has since appeared in the Sydney Daily Telegraph of Saturday last, and is headed -" White Labour for Sugar Plantations " : -

The Treasurer recently made inquiries concerning the amount of white labour available in the sugar districts for employment in connexion with the Central Mills. The Treasurer has. received a reply indicating that already there is plenty of white labour available in most sugar districts, and that at present, at any rate, there will be no need for the Labour Bureau to send men from the metropolis.

Has the attention of the Minister of Home Affairs been directed to that statement ?
