Mr BEALE - Yes. I received a teleprinter message about this matter a few minutes ago. It appears that some inspectors, have threatened to stop work owing to a dispute between themselves and the management of the aircraft factory. Action was immediately taken by the Department of Defence Production to refer the matter to the Public Service Arbitrator, Mr. Galvin, who has set it down for hearing at 10.30 a.m. on Monday next, when every effort will be made to reach a settlement. I hope that the inspectors, who are a fine body of men, will think over this matter very carefully and see whether it is possible to have it adjusted in the amicable and friendly way that such disputes should be settled and have been settled in the past.
