Mr SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member is using a fairly long preface and giving information. I suggest that he ask his question.

Mr CHARLES JONES - I am coming to that now.

Mr SPEAKER -I suggest that the honourable member come to it.

Mr SPEAKER -Order! If the honourable member does not ask his question I will ask him to resume his seat.

Mr CHARLES JONES - Can the Minister say whether the recent 50 per cent increase in onshore container handling charges, or the increase of 4 per cent in freight for wool, 6 per cent for sheep skin? and 10 per cent for refrigerated and general cargo would have been greater if the Government had not joined Associated Container Transportation Ltd? Is this the sort of protection which the Minister had in mind or will he now concede that the warning of the Leader of the Opposition was well based?
