Mr MORGAN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Prime Minister noticed in the press the statement that President Roosevelt is taking steps to displace " dollar a year " men who hold honorary directorships, because official investigation has shown that they have been unable to dissociate themselves from their private interests in their dealings on behalf of the Government? Will the honorable gentleman launch a similar investigation is order to ascertain whether any such honorary directors in Australia are susceptible to the same human trait, and whether the activities of any of them have retarded the production of war materials, particularly aluminium, aero engines, and machine tools ?
