Proposed Queensland sugar mill locations, 1923. In 1922, the Queensland Government appointed William Harris to chair a Royal Commission into the most suitable locations for future sugar mills. From 10 October to 13 December the Royal Commission inspected and listened to the testimony of witnesses at many of these proposed locations. Together with the evidence of interested people, the commission heard from master mariners, Crowns Lands Rangers, officers of the Public Estate Improvement Branch, and other departments of the Public Service. The product of the Royal Commission was a report presented to the parliament which included this map.
