Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) . - I should like to ask the Minister .of Defence to inform the Committee as to the conditions under which workers are engaged in the Harness Factory and the . Clothing Factory. I should like to know what hours they work, the wages they receive, and, generally, the conditions of their employment. One honorable senator was desirous of ascertaining the value of property, and, as I think the lives of workers are much more important, perhaps the Minister will give the Committee some information as to the conditions of employment in these factories.
