Mr THOMPSON - Is there any truth in the report that the Government proposes to curtail the activities of the Lithgow Small Arms Factory? By way of explanation, I may say that the factory is now manufacturing shearing machine accessories of good quality and at cheap prices, but there is an agitation afoot to induce the Government to require the management to discontinue this class of work. Is the Prime Minister aware of any intention to close down the factory so far as this class of work is concerned ?
