Senator McCOLL (Victoria) . - Perhaps the Minister in charge of these Estimates can give us some information with regard to the Clifton Hill Harness, Saddlery, and Leather Accoutrement Factory, and the Clothing Factory, Melbourne. Have there been any balance-sheets issued to show the results of the operations of these factories, and the cost and value of the work they turn out? We should have some information on these subjects. I should also like the Minister to say whether the Clifton Hill factory has taken over all the making and repairing of mail bags which has hitherto been done by the Postal Department. If that be so, who are making the bags now? Are they the trained hands engaged on the work for the Post and Telegraph Department, or have fresh hands been taken on at the factory for the purpose? If a fresh staff has been engaged, the Minister might say what the men who have hitherto been doing the work of the Post and Telegraph Department are doing now.
