Mr BAMFORD (HERBERT, QUEENSLAND) asked the Minister of Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   Whether it is correct that the Minister has withdrawn or altered the regulation, lately in force, which disallowed the loading or discharging of cargo at , Flat Top -Island anchorage, Queensland,' on Sundays?-

2.   If so, what were the representations made to the Minister which induced him to allow of the resumption of Sunday work at the place named ?

3.   Further, if the Minister has withdrawn the regulation referred to, were any inquiries made by him, before taking action, as to the objections held by persons interested, other than shippers and consignees, to cargo being worked on Sundays, and as to why the regulation forbidding Sunday work at Flat Top had been issued by ' previous Ministers?
