Mr GANDER (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for Works intimate how many men will be employed through the Commonwealth Public Works Department office in Sydney as general labourers between now and Christmas?

Mr THORBY - It is impossible to say how many. All work possible will be undertaken, and as much employment provided as possible. A large sum of money will be expended, and the State authorities are co-operating by making technical officers and foremen available so as to avoid delay. No time will be lost in making work available, particularly for unskilled labour.
