Mr BRUCE (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - On the 15th May the honorable member for Corio (Mr. Lister) referred to the matter of the proposed establishment in Geelong, Victoria, of a textile school, and I promised to ascertain the present state of the negotiations. In May, 1927, members of the Development and Migration Commission visited Geelong, and discussed with representatives of the textile industry there the question of the establishment of a textile school. It was then agreed that a committee of the industry should be appointed at Geelong to formulate a definite scheme for submission to the Development and Migration Commission. Although steps have been taken by the Commission to expedite the submission of particulars of such scheme, the desired information has not yet been received by it.
