The Commission of Inquiry into the Huntly disaster have finished taking evidence. The finding of the Commission is expected to be available in a week’s time. In reply to a question by Sir Joseph Ward in the House of Representatives yesterday afternoon, the Minister of Mines said it was necessary to get the report of the Huntly Disaster Commission before the Mines Committee could take evidence on the subject of alleged cases of victimisation. The Prime Minister said there had been a dastardly attempt to make political capital out of this disaster. He did not refer to Sir Joseph Ward, and he wanted to make it perfectly clear that the Government had nothing to hide, and would place the blame on the right persons Mr M'Corabs pointed out that the question of victimisation might have a very direct bearing on the cause of the accident, and the scope of the inquiry would be unduly limited if the committee ■were not able to take evidence on that subject.
