Senator McDOUGALL - Is the Minister of Defence aware that a number of mechanics were sent to England by the Commonwealth Government-

Senator Millen - By the State Government.

Senator McDOUGALL - They were sent by the Commonwealth Government to gain experience in ship-building. Is the Minister also aware that the whole of these men have left the works, along with the late manager, Mr. Cutler, and are now employed in the State works under him ?

Senator MILLEN - I am quite aware that, at a farewell demonstration to Mr. Cutler,he expressed the hope that a number of those who were employed at Cockatoo Island Dockyard would make their services available at the new establishment of which he was to take charge. I am, therefore, not surprised to hear that the invitation given on that occasion has been responded to.
