Mr LAZZARINI - When war against Japan broke out I had to drop the inquiries which I was making into the cost-plus system in order to attend Cabinet meetings and give more attention to the Department of Home Security, whose work has increased by more than 200 per cent The inquiries which I started are being continued by an official of the Treasury. This morning I reported to the Minister for Munitions what that official had told me. I am confident that within the next few days action will be taken to minimize, if not. eradicate, many of the evils which have been discovered in the cost-plus system. Meanwhile I cannot make the report desired by the honorable member.
