Mr BRUCE - Yesterday the honorable member for Moreton (Mr. J. Francis) and the honorable member for Capricornia (Mr. Forde) referred to the requests which had been made to the late Minister for Trade and Customs for increased assistance for the cotton industry, and I promised to furnish a list of the matters which had been referred to the Tariff Board for public inquiry and report.
