Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order ! That matter has been thoroughly canvassed in this House. The honorable member may not have been present yesterday -when two or three questions were asked on the same matter.

Mr ANTHONY - This is an entirely different matter.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Then the honorable member may ask his question. " Mr. ANTHONY.- The Prime Minister is reported by the Labour Call to have said -

I have always said that if there is a great public utility, essential to the needs of the public, that is badly managed or handled, it should be nationalized. . . . We have been making a selection of really essential things, so that we shall not get mixed up with things that do not matter.

Will the Prime Minister state what industries his Government has been selecting for nationalization? Will he announce them so that the public may know before the elections what industries the Government proposes to nationalize?
