Senator OGDEN (TASMANIA) - Has the Government abandoned the idea of introducing legislation to provide for the payment of ii bounty to the paper-pulp industry?

Senator DALY - No; but the form of assistance to be given will depend to a large extent upon the economic possibilities of the industry.

Senator Ogden - They have been proved.

Senator DALY - I admit that they have been proved up to a certain point, but there are other problems to be considered. One, it would not be wise for me to discuss at this stage, but I can assure the honorable senator that the Government is giving close attention to the whole subject.

Senator HERBERT HAYS - Oan the Minister indicate when the Government will be in a position to announce its final decision?

Senator DALY - I have limited the investigations by the three gentlemen mentioned to three weeks, so that when Parliament reassembles early in the new year, I hope to be able to make an announcement of the Government's intentions.
