Mr FULLER (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Defence Production whether, in order to win tradesmen from their present jobs for the St. Mary's ammunition project, they are being offered an increase in pay of 50 per cent. Has this offer been made to carpenters, bricklayers, plumbers and technicians in many parts of Sydney? What effect will this poaching have upon the economy? Will the Minister prevent this new wave of inflation by ordering the practice to cease at once?
