Mr TURNBULL - I direct the atten tion of the Minister representing the Minister for Supply and Development to an article that appeared in a newspaper last Thursday. It was stated in the article that the Australian Aluminium Production Commission now has under its control bauxite deposits in Australia that are sufficiently extensive to enable the commission to maintain the production of aluminium in this country at the rate of 10,000 tons a year for 100 years. Can the Minister say how much of the bauxite is in Victoria, and at what places it is located ? How does the quality of the Victorian bauxite deposits compare with that of deposits in other States?
