Mr MAKIN (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Aircraft Production) - I can appreciate the anxiety of the honorable member that adequate supplies of wire netting, particularly of the smallmesh kind, shall be made available to people engaged in primary production. Although the distribution of this commodity is under the control of my department, it is manufactured by private industry. Difficulty has been experienced in manufacturing it in the quantities required, because of the shortage of man-power, but the transfer of men from war-time operations topeace time pursuits may result in a speeding up of production sufficientto satisfy the demands of the community.
