Mr LAZZARINI (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Prime Minister whether the Government intends to take any action in connexion with the report published in the Sydney and Melbourne press to the effect that hundreds of girls are being sweated in the iron industry in both those cities? If he cannot give an undertaking concerning any action contemplated by this Government, will he at least assure the House that none of the establishments found to be guilty of this practice, will share in any of the contracts to be let by the Government for defence purposes?
