Mr ROSEVEAR - Will the Prime

Minister inform me whether the Joint Committee on 'War Expenditure communicated with him concerning a certain contracting firm in Sydney because it was so perturbed at what was happening? Did the committee request him to take steps to ensure that no further contracts should be given to the firm until its existing contracts have been investigated? Is the Prime Minister aware that, regardless of the steps taken in that connexion, the firm is now obtaining work as a subcontractor, although it is extremely doubtful whether it has the capacity to perform the work which it is undertaking to do?
