Sir EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister representing the Minister for Commerce and Agriculture read the report in the local and Sydney press that the British ship, City of Durham, 10,000 tons, left Melbourne last night for San Francisco with 2,000 tons of sand ballast as a substitute for general cargo? The report, further, states that three overseas vessels have loft Melbourne without cargoes in the last three weeks, and that another British ship will have its empty holds filled with sandbags to-day. Can the Minister inform the House what foods for which these boats came to Australia are not available at present, and when that food will be available?
