Mr MORGAN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Prime Minister observed that the British Government has now followed . the example of the Government of the United States of America by setting up a directorate of production with a view to co-ordinating effort and expediting war production? If so, will the Prime Minister consider the setting up of a similar organization in Australia ? Will he state whether the direction which he recently gave with a view to increasing the authority of the Sydney Area Board of Management in regard to payments for war contracts has been acted upon in accordance with the recommendation of the Joint Committee on War Expenditure? According to my Information, nothing has yet been done in the matter, and Mr. Nixon, in Melbourne, still retains control over such payments, thus hampering production.
