Mr CURTIN (Fremantle) (Prime Minister) . - I desire to announce to the House that the Minister for Social

Services and Minister for Health (the Honorable E. J. Holloway) will also act as Minister assisting the Minister for Munitions in lieu of Senator Cameron, Minister for Aircraft Production.

In accordance with the previous announcement that Ministers would use the services of private members to assist them in administrative and other work connected with the war, I have, as Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Co-ordination, requested the right honorable member for Yarra (Mr. Scullin) to act for and with me in a series of capacities, and he has consented to do so. I am grateful to the right honorable gentleman, and I am quite sure that the people of Australia will be appreciative of the service that he undoubtedly will be able to render.
