Mr BEALE (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Supply) - Yes, I was telephoned and received telegrams about this matter this morning. I understand that the Bendigo press this morning gave banner headlines to a story to that effect. It is a peculiarly cruel and wanton story, Mr. Speaker. There is no truth in it. lt is not proposed to discharge a large number of men at th? present time, and I do not know of any proposal to discharge any large number in the future.
