Mr DEDMAN (CORIO, VICTORIA) (Minister for War Organisation of Industry) - Mr.Ifould has been appointed as Deputy Director in New South Wales of the Department of War Organization of Industry. I amnot aware that Mr. Ifould has made a state ment such as that attributed to him bythe honorable member, but, inmy opinion,he is eminently suited to fill the position to which he has been appointed. The qualifications necessary for the incumbent of that position are, to my mind, these - First, that he should have a thorough grasp of the principles upon which my department is trying to operate; secondly, he should be an individual with contacts spread over as wide a section of the people as possible; thirdly, that he should be free from any suspicion of having been closelyassociated with any of the industries which, my department proposes to rationalize ; fourthly, that he should have administrative ability of a high order. In my opinion, Mr. Ifould has all those qualifications.
