Mr McIVOR (GELLIBRAND, VICTORIA) - I address a question to the Minister for Defence Production, and preface it by saying that I am reliably informed that private firms are engaged to do a great deal of the work that rightly should be done in munitions factories at Maribyrnong. This practice is also being followed, to a lesser degree, in other Commonwealth establishments within the electorate that 1 represent. I am further informed that the work done by private firms is not up to standard, and that, when delivered to the Commonwealth departments, it is rejected or returned so that further machining can be done to bring it up to standard. Will the Minister undertake to discontinue this system, so that dismissed government employees can be reinstated, and any further dismissals avoided?
