Mr Calwell l asked the Minister for Munitions, upon notice -

1.   How many firms in Melbourne have offered to do war work and been refused?

2.   Which of such firms are capable of making munitions and war equipment?

Mr Makin - It is regretted that with the limited staffs available and the necessity for their concentration upon work vital in the war effort, it is impracticable to supply the information in the form desired by the honorable member. If he desires information in respect of any particular firm, it can be supplied. It can be said, however, that no firm capable of making munitions, which means a firm already in possession of the requisite plant and skilled labour, should remain unutilized, and if the honorable member is aware of any such firm I shall be glad to have particulars so that I may obtain a report.
