Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - I desire to ask the Acting Prime Minister a question without notice. In view of the concern felt by many people at rumours that the naval dockyards at Williamstown, Victoria,' and Garden Island, 'New South Wales, are likely to be closed because of lack or orders, or that work is likely to be greatly curtailed, will the Acting Prime Minister arrange for a statement to be made either when this House resumes after Easter, or some time next week even if the Parliament is not sitting, so that people's fears may be allayed, if possible, or so that they will at least know just what the future of these well-established institutions is likely to be? We are all very proud of these establishments, which give so much employment to so many people.
