asked the Minister of Works what adjustments he proposes to make in the Control of Rates of Hire of Plant Order to meet changing conditions; and when it will be possible for this control to be abandoned.

In reply to the second part of the Question, although I have not felt able to cancel the control altogether at the present time, I hope that conditions will enable me to do so before the end of the year.
