Mr LUCHETTI (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Prime Minister receive a deputation from the representatives of dismissed employees of the Commonwealth Small Arms Factory at Lithgow?' I ask the Prime Minister this question because of the impending departure from Australia of the Minister for Defence Production, who has refused to receive the representatives of the dismissed employees. If the Prime Minister is not prepared toreceive such a deputation, will he, because of the complexities of this matter, arrange for the Minister for Labour and National Service and the Minister for Defence to receive a delegation? I point out to the right honorable gentleman that grave anxiety exists among the dismissed employees, who have given as much as fifteen years' continuous loyal service, but are now faced with the impossible task of finding employment in the district where they live.
