Mr RYAN (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - In view of the urgent necessity to make available personnel for the fighting services and war industries, has the Minister for Labour and National Service investigated the degree to which government departments, government instrumentalities such as the Australian Apple and Pear Marketing Board, and other concerns that are working under such instrumentalities, may be drawn on for this purpose, and the extent to which men taken from them may be replaced by women? If so, what action has he taken to make such men available and to replace them by women where possible?
