Mr E JAMES HARRISON (BLAXLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Can the

Minister for Defence Production say whether the 20 per cent, reduction in staff already effected by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation at Lidcombe can be regarded as the limit in retrenchment that will take place, either now or in the immediate future, at those works? ls the Minister aware that in the retrenchment policy being followed at Lidcombe, married men and their wives, in some instances, have been retained, whilst some married men have been retrenched? Further, can the Minister indicate, from information that he may have, whether the rumour that the corporation's organization at Lidcombe will be handed over to private enterprise between now and 1st July, 1957, has any foundation?
