Senator DUNCAN (New South Wales) . - I notice that the amounts proposed to be appropriated in connexion with the Clothing Factory, Harness Factory, and the Woollen Cloth Factory, namely, £250, £150, and £250, respectively, are, in each instance, to be paid into the credit of a Trust Fund. It seems, therefore, that there is some special method of dealing with the various Factories under the control of the Defence Department. I would like the Minister to explain why a Trust Fund has been established in connexion with each of these Factories, and why the supply granted by this Parliament has to be paid into those funds ?
