The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator McColl (VICTORIA) - I am afraid that that question is not covered by the item before the Committee.

Senator GARDINER - That is an incidental thought which occurred to me, sir. If we had the whole of that territory we might be able to establish the Woollen Mills there.

Senator Lt Colonel Sir Albert Gould - Why not take in the whole of New South Wales while you are about it?

Senator GARDINER - I shall be quite prepared to support Senator Long or. Senator Cameron if he will move an amendment to resume the whole of Tasmania if they are willing to establish the Woollen Mills at Launceston or Hobart. That would confer a great advantage, not only as far as the Woollen Mills themselves are concerned, but on the people of the State as well. I am pleased to let Victorian senators know that even when they are in a tight corner I am quite willing to give Victoria an industry which can employ its people.
