Mr GREGORY (Swan) . - I want fromthe Minister (Mr. Casey) a full explanation of what arrangements he proposes to make for the establishment or extension of industries for purposes of defence, under paragraph c of subclause 1? Will he have power to give assistance, and if so what will be the nature of the assistance, for the establishment of new industries? We know that a very wide meaning can be given to the phrase "for purposes of defence" as well as to the term " arrangements." Not long ago honorable members were informed by a Minister that the manufacture of motor cars in Australia is absolutely essential for purposes of defence.
