Richmond Tweed Saw-millers desire you advise Government policy military service timber employees. Area officers commanding men proceed camp short notice. Mills supplying rifle furniture Air Raid Precaution butter boxes orders unable carry on due withdrawal men to camp. Is it intention withdraw key men from industry

Will the Minister for the Army confer with the Minister for Supply and Development in order to ascertain whether Australia is so short of timber that men cannot be withdrawn from this key industry if Australia's defence needs are to be met?
