Mr McHUGH (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Some time ago the Premier of South Australia stated that considerable work was to be undertaken at the Islington works in the assembling of aeroplanes and in other directions in connexion with the Commonwealth's defence programme and, as the result, the people of South Australia were looking forward to considerable activity in those works. I now understand that some delay has occurred. Can the Minister for Defence say whether such delay is due to the establishment of the new Department of Supply and Development, or to a decision that this work will not be undertaken in any factory in South Australia ?
