Mr McEWEN - I had thought that there were some politics in the question. I am not departmentally responsible for administering the Joint Coal Board, and I do not pretend to be fully cognizant of its statutory situation. But 1 am aware, as the honorable member is aware, that the Joint Coal Board is the creation of the Commonwealth Government and the New South Wales Government. The Commonwealth Government has stated its view through the responsible Minister, the Minister for National Development. Perhaps the honorable member should state his point of view to the Labour Government of New South Wales, which is the other party to the agreement.
