Mr FISHER - It may be laid down a3 a general rule that it is not advisable for one Legislature to advise another, but I announced to the House some time ago that we had communicated with the British Government stating that, as they were reported to be short of coal, and as there were thousands of men in the Newcastle district who were unemployed, or only partially employed, we would be glad to supply the Home authorities with coal immediately. To that offer we, unfortunately, did not receive a favorable reply.
