Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister for Supply and Development read an article in the latest issue of Smith's Weekly, in which it is stated that recently three leading companies Were given orders for military underwear valued at approximately £200,000? If so, will he inform the House whether the statement is accurate, and whether, as stated in the report, no tenders were called, although upwards of twenty other mills are making precisely the same class of garments? Has the Department of Supply and Development notified all other firms that previously tendered for military underwear that it has been decided with regret that no further orders will be given in respect of summer requirements?
